This study focuses on the impact that occupational fraud has on the nonprofit sector and how nonprofit organizations react to fraud occurrences. Specifically, it focuses on how often nonprofits choose to prosecute fraudsters. It also explores how the negative publicity surrounding a fraud incident in a nonprofit might affect the subsequent amount of charitable donations that nonprofit will receive. Finally, this study will explore whether or not nonprofits have a fiduciary duty to their stakeholders to prosecute fraudsters and publicize fraud incidents.
