When not-for-profit entities and governments fall prey to fraud, it breaks the hearts of donors and taxpayers. Fraud also causes donors and taxpayers to lose confidence in those not-for-profit entities and governments. In this course, we will focus on the common types of fraud that occur in not-for-profit entities and governments and address the auditor’s responsibilities related to fraud. The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format. Over 30 focused exercises are included to provide an enhanced knowledge of fraud in not-for-profit entities and governments.
