Fraud Protection Program?
The Churches and Non-Profit Organizations
Fraud Protection Program helps churches and non-profit organizations protect themselves
from fraud by requiring fraud audits to be conducted on an annual basis using our fraud
audit software (Small Business Fraud Audit). Our software:
- Includes 100 personal audit coaching sessions. Churches and
non-profits can use these sessions to get help with their audit scope, audit plan, audit
report, audit testing, business process documentation, audit interviews or any other audit
related topic. Just click the "help icon" at any time to start a personal audit
- Walks churches and non-profits through numerous fraud audit
tests in an effort to detect company fraud.
- Helps churches and non-profits audit for fraud in customer
service, advertising and marketing, sales, billing, operations, accounting and finance,
information systems and physical security processes.
- Protects churches and non-profits from fraud and pilferage
by putting the proper fraud controls in place for all key departments.
- Helps churches and non-profits save thousands of dollars by
doing their own fraud audits. Accounting firms typically take 1000 hours to complete
an audit and bill clients between $75 and $150 an hour for their audit services.
- Lets churches and non-profits use our fraud auditing
software to keep employees honest and protect organization assets from business fraud.
- Includes built-in fraud audit sample size calculator to help
you determine the scope of the fraud audit testing.

upon the completion of their fraud audit.
How do I know if I need a fraud audit
for my church or non-profits?
- New community leaders often perform fraud audits at the
start of their tenure in order to know everything about the organization they are taking
- Churches and non-profits often perform fraud audits when key
employees leave the company.
- Churches and non-profits often perform fraud audits if they
suspect that business fraud has taken place.
- Churches and non-profits often perform fraud audits after
fraud has taken place in order to ensure that all business fraud is uncovered.
- Many church or non-profits by-laws and loan covenants
require regular fraud audits.
