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.

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.
