News stories about fraud and embezzlement at nonprofit organizations abound. Too many organizations find themselves dealing with these kinds of problems when an understanding of common schemes, and the implementation of relatively simple, yet important processes, procedures, and policies could protect them from many of these issues.
Join us for a discussion on how nonprofits can prevent and detect fraud within their organizations. Topics to be covered include:
- Prevalence of Fraud and Recent Examples of Fraud
- Common Types of Fraud Schemes
- Red Flags
- Preventive and Detective Internal Controls
- Investigating Potential Frauds
