AuthenticID Announces $250K Donation to Battle Human Trafficking

SEATTLE, WA – March 2, 2022 – AuthenticID , the leading provider of identity proofing and fraud prevention solutions for large enterprises, announced it is establishing a Donor Advised Fund with Seattle Foundation with an initial donation of $250,000 to support non-profit organizations across the country in their efforts to combat human trafficking

Seattle Foundation will manage the distribution of the donation to certified non-profits who are partners in the new All for Humanity Alliance (A4H), a movement established in 2021 by AuthenticID to raise awareness and help fight human trafficking and exploitation.

“Seattle Foundation is proud that the All for Humanity Alliance has entrusted us with this partnership,” said Stephanie McLemore-Bray, Chief Engagement Officer of Seattle Foundation. “This is just one of many ways that our community partners are working together to make a positive impact in not only Greater Seattle, but worldwide.”

“It is an honor to team up with Seattle Foundation to offer direct financial support to our trusted front-line nonprofit partners addressing Human Trafficking,” said Douglas Plank Vice President of Strategic Alliances, Authentic ID. “Building awareness while rescuing and restoring lives takes considerable resources, and our partnership with The Seattle Foundation offers much-needed philanthropic services for the good and paramount work being done by these non-profit organizations across the nation.“ 

AuthenticID is a purpose-driven company that fights organized crime to stop fraud with its market-leading, advanced identity proofing and fraud detection technology. Enlightened to the fact that almost all organized crime operations are also involved in human trafficking, the company embarked on a special initiative in 2021, establishing A4H.

“Our mission as a business and a team is rooted in stopping fraud and exploitation, and safeguarding individual identity,” said Jeff S. Jani, CEO, AuthenticID. “We share this purpose with our clients and it is an honor to establish this fund that will enable AuthenticID and other corporate partners to monetarily support well-vetted, leading nonprofits working on the front lines saving and restoring lives.”
