Preventing and detecting fraud at not-for-profits

Sponsored by Xero and Blackbaud

Organizations in all industries must deal with the potential for fraud to occur, and design controls to prevent and detect it. Some not-for-profits have a unique environment that can contribute to a fraud. Common characteristics such as an outlook of trust, significant control by a limited number of people, human and financial resources, reliance on volunteers, higher turnover and weaker internal controls can contribute to the likelihood of fraud.
