New Charity Screening Service Announced

Regulatory DataCorp, International LLC (RDC), ChoicePoint, and GuideStar announced that they will offer a new global due diligence service, called "CharityGuard." Corporations and institutions can screen each of their charitable gifts in one report. The new service will assist corporations and institutions in ensuring the integrity of their direct and "matching" charitable donations. CharityGuard will aggregate the technical, data, and sector expertise of the three companies to protect institutional donors against fraud, terrorist financing, diversion of funds, and corruption, and help to ensure an unprecedented level of donor confidence.

The service brings together GuideStar, a database of information on more than 850,000 U.S. charitable organizations, ChoicePoint, a provider of identification and credential verification services, and RDC's GRID database, which provides risk-relevant data available from public sources around the world.

CharityGuard will screen organizations and their chief executives and board chairpersons using domestic and international public government records, enforcement initiatives, regulatory filings, and reporting from leading news sources around the world. CharityGuard identifies potential risks and provides subscribers with a comprehensive report of risk-relevant information on potential donations.
