How do I use a GOOD DEED Code?

Please follow the instructions below to learn how to use a GOOD DEED Code

A GOOD DEED Code is a code provided to a volunteer/candidate by their prospective volunteer organization or employer to submit a background check. When entered into the Sterling Volunteers system, it will connect the candidate with the organization, and the system will automatically know what level of check to order, the pricing, etc.


Take note that not ALL organizations use GOOD DEED Codes for background checks. They may choose to send email invitations or order the background checks themselves. Kindly contact your organization to ask if you need a GOOD DEED Code to submit a background check. 



1. First, you'll need to register and create Account if you don't have one.
