The information produced from this survey provides a benchmark for not-for-profit organisations revealing the perception and level of fraud in the sector, examining specific incidences of fraud and what the sector is doing to prevent fraud occurring.

The sector as a whole performed extremely well both in the level of fraud currently occurring and the steps being taken to reduce the likelihood of fraud occurring in their organisation. As the first survey of its kind for the not-for-profit sector, a number of comparisons have been drawn with large organisations in the public and private sector.

While this comparison has been necessary to provide the sector with a marker for their performance it is also important to recognise the inherent differences which exist between organisations in the not-for-profit sector and other sectors and the way they operate.
