Fraud Assessment for Non-profit Leadership
With over one million non-profits in the United States, it is no surprise that non-profits are increasing as major targets for fraud, embezzlement, waste, and abuse just behind publicly traded companies, and in front of government entities. In recent years, major non-profit frauds have been reported by AARP, Columbia University, American Cancer Society, the Episcopal Church and thousands of others.
Non-profit leadership can protect against fraud, non-profit embezzlement, waste and abuse in their organizations. Drawing from over 20 years’ experience, Bryant Truitt, CFE shares techniques for risk reduction, how to recognize the early warning signs, action steps to take, and how to act on concerns of non-profit fraud. Attendees will receive a Vulnerability Index for assessing risk factors and will review techniques that can be implemented in the non-profit to lower the risk.
Bryant infuses each interactive, open format presentation with passion, fun, and actual case examples while customizing the topic to meet the specific needs and questions of the audience. New schemes and old ones with new angles are appearing daily with the sole purpose of creating opportunities for misapplication, misappropriation, and inappropriate activity. Attend this fast-paced, hard hitting course to learn the “trust but verify” prevention techniques that can dramatically reduce the risk of loss for your non-profit. Too many times leadership believes it could not happen to them, however non-profit fraud is all too real, and can devastate the reputation, efficiency, and profitability of your nonprofit.
