Nonprofit organizations are particularly susceptible to fraud—and suffer particularly devastating losses when it happens. Whether it’s one employee falsifying financial statements or a group of individuals pocketing cash, fraudulent activities can costs your organization both its funding and its reputation. What’s worse: Nonprofits and small businesses typically have far fewer robust internal fraud controls than for-profit and large corporations. Now is the time to change that.
In this information-packed webinar, audit and accounting expert Carol Barnard will teach you how often fraud occurs at nonprofits and which situations lead to the greatest losses. Get an overview of the risk, a profile of fraud perpetrators, and a list of common fraud red flags. Then, against a backdrop of real-world examples of recent nonprofit fraud, learn to better arm your organization’s defense and create a zero-tolerance culture that will keep fraudsters away.
After attending this instructive session, you will know how to institute—and firmly enforce—an anti-fraud program and internal controls. You’ll have the tools and knowledge to both prevent illegal activity and take action if your organization is hit with fraud. Remember: Educating yourself and your staff on fraud, and your organization’s intolerance for it, is the number-one way to protect the mission you’ve worked so hard to promote and fund.
