Detecting & Preventing Fraud

Yes, fraud happens - even in nonprofits - and it can harm future fundraising.  Knowing what to look for and implementing preventative measures can protect valuable assets and build donor confidence.

You will receive an overview of the types of fraud common to nonprofit organizations.  By the end of the course you will understand how to maximize fraud-prevention at minimal cost.  You will also be able to recognize the red flags of the occupational frauds most likely to hit your organization.

You will gain a good understanding of the internal controls a nonprofit should have in place to mitigate the risk of material errors or fraud.  Good internal controls are expected not only by the IRS, but by donors and grantors.
