A Great Example of Corporate Social Responsibility

IntegraScan, a new corporate sponsor of Charity Navigator, is giving back to the community in a big way through its Safe Kids program. The company noticed that the downturn in the economy had led to a pronounced decrease in the number of organizations serving children and youth that were requesting the necessary and vital background checks of their employees and volunteers. This year, IntegraScan made a commitment to provide $500,000 of monthly free background checks to organizations serving children and youth. That adds up to $6 million annually. Eligible organizations do not have to have 501 (c)(3) status--they simply have to demonstrate that they provide programs and services to this population. Click here to learn more. And thanks, IntegraScan, for your commitment to corporate responsibility!

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>

Any org dealing with children should have back ground checks on the adults that supervise them. Say what about background checks for priests?
