Better Background Checks for Volunteer Communities and Non-Profits

Organizations that rely on volunteers—from sports organizations to education nonprofits to churches—still need to find the right people to staff their projects and initiatives. While volunteer or non-profit organizations often run very lean when it comes to hiring teams, it doesn’t mean you need less effective background checks. Checkr can help to lighten the workload of hiring, lower your costs, keep you compliant, and help you create a stronger and safer community.
