As recent press reports have highlighted, nonprofits are not immune from employee fraud and embezzlement. In fact, they may be more susceptible than their for-profit counterparts. Using recent, actual incidents as case studies, this program will explore why nonprofits so often fall victim to employee fraud and embezzlement, along with simple steps that every nonprofit can take to protect itself. Joining the seasoned fraud professionals from Venable and BDO will be the lead investigator and author of the recent Washington Post articles that have shaken the nonprofit community.

Topics of discussion will include, among others:

  • Typical fraudulent schemes perpetrated against nonprofits


  • The importance of multiple approvals and segregation of duties


  • Effective compliance programs for nonprofits


  • What to do if a problem arises


  • The IRS Form 990 and the duty to disclose
