If you’re a manager at a non-profit, this story in The Washington Post is a must-read.
As I wrote here, two decades ago I had a part-time person on my staff stealing from my association. As the article explains, the thief was caught very quickly after the accounting department discovered some anomalies during the monthly reconciliation. The thief was caught because there were good accounting controls in place. The non-profits outlined in the Post article clearly did not have good accounting controls in place.
Let this be a lesson to all of us.
