Volunteers are an integral part of society. Unfortunately there is that small percent of volunteer contact that is actually harmful. Volunteers are not the only segment that nonprofits need to be concerned with. Employees and board members can also harm an organization and its clientele.
Savvy nonprofit organizations realize that there are ways to mitigate the risk of letting the wrong person be a volunteer, employee, or board member; in turn mitigating the risk of fraud, abuse, illegal activity, and negative influence. Background investigations are one of the best ways to mitigate those risks.
Savvy nonprofit organizations also realize that a properly implemented background investigations policy and procedure carries with it the concerns of being time consuming, requires the gathering of sensitive data, is paper heavy, and can be costly.
