Volunteer & Non-Profit Background Checks

Non-profit, volunteer and religious organizations depend on the goodwill of volunteers to carry out their missions, which often involve interacting with people at vulnerable times in their lives. The Non-Profit/Volunteer Screening Solutions help insure that individuals of questionable background or intent are detected and removed from the pool of potential hires, with three levels of search depth available. We recommend Level 2 for positions where financial responsibility or exceptional trust is required and Level 3 for international organizations.
