Schools rely on a volunteer-led workforce to manage the $4.5 billion dollar school fundraising business. Most of these volunteers have no experience or knowledge about how to manage a charitable organization, and many don’t even consider the work they do for the school booster club a business. The result is that the business of fundraising suffers from some of the highest levels of theft of any industry. Trust levels are high, cash is plentiful, and financial controls are rarely enforced. Sadly, fraud is becoming more common and more easily missed, losses are becoming greater, and your students are suffering. It is essential to equip your school’s parent-teacher organization with the tools to prevent such theft before it happens. This webinar teaches you how to implement simple and sustainable solutions to help prevent theft from happening in your school.

Please join attorney Sandra Pfau England for a webinar that is essential to any school with a booster club or parent-teacher organization. She will help you create a system that promotes ease and transparency, assist you in identifying signs of fraud, and outline steps to take in the case of suspected theft. Your school (and its dedicated volunteers) cannot afford to miss this important webinar!


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • The prevalence of theft in school fundraising groups
  • What “transparency” really means when it comes to your organization’s financials
  • How to implement separation of duties and controls in a small organization with limited staff
  • Simple tips for safe-guarding cash, and new ideas about how to go cashless
  • The benefits of using online accounting software
