Keeping IDentities Safe® is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan, not-for-profit, crime prevention educational charity. We are 100% funded by individual donor contributions and foundation grants. Our slogan, “Working to protect the identity of every American” embodies our commitment to higher standards for both government and private entities that issue identity credentials, especially state agencies that issue driver’s licenses and ID cards. In addition to operating youth oriented programs, we undertake research on how people can take steps protect themselves against identity fraud. We provide research results and educational programs to the Boys & Girls Clubs, and seek cooperation for program from state government agencies.
The Keeping IDentities Safe® for KIDS program is aimed at raising parental awareness that children are increasingly the victims of identity theft. The people stealing identities from children are typically career criminals, often local to the kid’s own neighborhood. When parents understand the risk, they can take steps to safeguard the identity of their children.
