Whistleblowing at Your Not-for-Profit

This week the Festival of Community Directors' turns its eye towards whistleblowing at not-for-profits.

Whistleblowing plays a crucial role in managing risk and cultivating an ethical culture in your not-for-profit organisation. It is an essential and effective tool in your good governance toolkit.

Research conducted in 2014 by BDO Australia found that tipoffs from whistleblowers were more effective in uncovering fraud within a not-for-profit organisation than any other method, including strong internal controls, internal audits and external audits.

Despite the effectiveness of whistleblowing, many not-for-profits do not have a whistleblowing policy in place.

Check out the resources below for information that will help your organisation maximise the benefits of disclosures from whistleblowing.
