Event description

Description

One of the most common things we hear when discussing theft and fraud with non-profit boards is “it won’t happen to us, we know our people” or “we’re too small to be a victim of fraud." The reality is that sometimes good people make bad decisions, no matter how big or small the organization is, and it's the board’s job to make sure they are doing everything they can to protect the organization, their employees, members, and stakeholders such as donors.

In Canada, 12% of occupational thefts and frauds that occurred were in non-profit organizations, and they resulted in a median loss of $178,000 (ACFE 2018 Report to the Nations). Imagine if your organization had to remove that amount from its budget, would it affect your ability to execute your programming? And what if the fraud became public knowledge, how would your donors, members, and other stakeholders react; would it affect future funding?

Join us on March 27th to learn how to start the conversation with your board, the warning signs that theft or fraud may be occurring in your organization and how to stop it.

We will present real case studies and provide you with a plan to look more closely at your internal controls including what questions the board should seek to answer to reduce the risk of your organization becoming a victim.

Your reputation is everything; do everything you can to protect it.
