Fraud and Abuse in Nonprofit Organizations


Business headlines today reflect an ongoing litany of "misdirected" assets, restated earnings, and out-and-out fraud. These cases, representing some of the biggest names in corporate America, have become frequent enough that much of their power to shock the public has been lost. But let the headlines involve a nonprofit or charitable organization, and the outcry can critically harm the organization involved — not to mention the goals they work so hard to achieve. 

"Fraud and Abuse in Nonprofit Organizations" is the first book to provide a detailed examination of the myriad financial abuses that can occur in the nonprofit arena, along with specific guidelines for their detection and prevention. This book provides decision-makers with the most comprehensive, hands-on look yet at nonprofit fraud and abuse, and outlines a fraud awareness and deterrence system designed to uncover and stop financial dishonesty before its damage becomes irreparable. Learn the special challenges of this sector and how to protect the resources and reputation of nonprofits.
