Nonprofits to learn about fraud prevention

Friday, August 31, 2012

The next workshop in the 2012 Nonprofit Learning Series, sponsored by the Putnam County Community Foundation and the Montgomery County Community Foundation, is titled "Financial Reports and Budgeting."

The guest speaker will be Barbara Bitzer of Simons Bitzer and Associates. The workshop will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10 at the Crawfordsville Country Club.

This workshop is only $15 if registered by Sept. 4 or $25 at the door.

In addition to managing cash, nonprofit organizations have a special need to prevent and detect fraud.

While for-profit organizations also must watch for fraud, the nonprofit sector has some unique considerations. To keep donations flowing, the need to maintain the public's trust and protect the organization's reputation is paramount. We will discuss some easy internal controls that can be implemented to prevent and detect fraud in your organization.

The Non-Profit Learning Series is designed to enrich and advance non-profit associations, organizations, churches and units of government. The cost includes the workshop, a catered lunch and all workshop materials.

To register, persons may contact Dean Gambill in the Community Foundation office at 653-4978 or dgambill@pcfoundation.org.

The Putnam County Community Foundation is a nonprofit public charity established in 1985 to administer endowments, award grants and provide leadership, enriching the quality of life and strengthening community in Putnam County.
