You and your team work hard to raise funds and execute on your nonprofit organization’s core mission. Simultaneously, you must manage a growing number of risks, particularly those that can flow from associating with an undesirable third party, as well as navigate regulatory, legal, and compliance landscapes around the world.
Kroll’s team of experts can help your nonprofit make informed decisions to better anticipate or mitigate these risks through our various services including “know your donor,” “know your beneficiary,” and “know your investments and fund managers” services. Each is specially designed to provide you with an understanding of the integrity, reliability, and legitimacy of the third parties that support, benefit from, or help carry out your mission.
Risk-based Screening and Due Diligence
For nearly 45 years, Kroll has helped organizations of all kinds navigate risks posed by third parties. The same processes and insights we honed to help clients “know your customer” and “know your third party” have been customized to help nonprofit organizations mitigate the risks associated with donors, beneficiaries, and investments.
These risks include donors who may have reputational issues or who may be moving illegitimate funds. Likewise, there might be integrity issues or other problematic attributes of your beneficiaries – many of whom may be in distant and unfamiliar geographies – that are unknown to your organization. You may also face the risk of investing mission-critical dollars in an undesirable fund. Learn more.
Because engaging with third parties is integral to most nonprofit missions, we offer a spectrum of screening and due diligence services tailored to assist with managing the growing challenge of knowing your donors, beneficiaries, and investments:
- Sanctioned lists and compliance database screens
- Analyst-driven media and public record checks conducted both in English and the local language
- Local field research and on-the-ground investigative capabilities in the event that red flags are raised during initial due diligence. These services leverage Kroll’s unparalleled global expertise and in-country resources
- Comprehensive risk-based program development, including customized policies, procedures, and controls
Risks to Your Organization Take Many Forms. Kroll Provides a Range of Services to Support Nonprofits.

Kroll's global investigative services and expertise can help you successfully prevent or mitigate associated risks such as reputational damage, financial losses, operational disruptions, exposure to government action, and criminal, civil, and regulatory liability.

In today’s information economy, data can be your organization’s most valuable asset. However, with the rise of mobile technology, cloud computing, and an exponentially growing volume of digital information, keeping that data secure also becomes one of your greatest challenges.
Information security issues – such as data breaches or employee misconduct – are a constant worry for organizational leaders. Cyber security challenges put sensitive data at risk and can cost your nonprofit time, funding, and resources. No one is immune to data loss incidents, and no one is better equipped than Kroll to help identify and close gaps that put your organization’s cyber security at risk.
