Fraud Checkup

All nonprofit organizations are at risk for fraud, and there are many different ways it can occur.

At CapinCrouse, we understand the unique fraud risk higher education institutions, churches, mission organizations, and other nonprofits of all sizes face. The CapinCrouse Fraud Checkup™ is designed to provide a comprehensive, customizable analysis of your organization’s fraud risk and meaningful recommendations to reduce it.

Insight and Analysis to Help Protect Your Organization from Fraud

The Fraud Checkup consists of three components to help identify fraud risks for your organization and provide best practice solutions to help you mitigate those risks:

  • Fraud Risk Assessment – We will guide you through a comprehensive fraud risk assessment tool and interview various personnel in your organization to gain an understanding of your activities, duties, processes, and areas of increased fraud risk.
  • Internal Control Analysis – We’ll assess your internal control documentation, policies, and procedures to help determine whether you have the appropriate checks and balances in place to reduce the likelihood of fraud.
  • Detailed Tests – We will perform detailed tests for areas of significant fraud risk.
Benefit from Our Nonprofit Fraud Expertise

The Fraud Checkup was designed by a dedicated team of Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) who also supervise a team of accountants specifically trained to work with nonprofits. We also have experience with forensic engagements.

At the end of your checkup, you’ll receive a confidential, customized report detailing:

  • Areas that appear to have increased vulnerability to fraud
  • Action steps and best practice tips to help prevent or detect fraud in your organization

We will also meet with you to review the report.

Help Protect Your Organization’s Finances – and Your Reputation

More than half (57%) of the organizations in the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ Occupational Fraud 2024: A Report to the Nations study that fell victim to fraud did not recover any of their losses, and 30% made only a partial recovery. And in addition to the financial loss, fraud can have a significant and long-lasting impact on an organization’s reputation and public trust, whether you are a church or denomination, higher education institution, or other nonprofit organization.

Test your organization’s fraud health with our online Fraud Risk and Prevention Questionnaire, and then contact us to learn more about how this service can help reduce your organization’s fraud risk.
