Protect Your Reputation

At Clarifacts, we know that non-profit organizations provide valuable services in their community. Most non-profits rely on financial contributions from corporations and individuals. In turn, these donors need to trust that their resources are going to an upstanding organization.

We work with non-profit organizations like United Cerebral Palsy of Central Arizona,  Jewish Family & Children’s Services, A New Leaf and Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center to help ensure their reputation as service organizations remain stellar, and that the clientele they serve is protected. We know special attention is needed when it comes to background screening your volunteers and employees.

Learn more about volunteer background checks and the vital role they play in non-profit organizations.
