Charity Leader Has Ignored Nonprofit Fraud

By Gary Snyder

Suzanne Perry has written a compelling article (  in the Chronicle of Philanthropy. I suggest that all read it. 

Diana Aviv of the Independent Sector has discounted that there is a problem and certainly as a charity leader she is not part of the solution.  “The chances that they are going to listen to one of us saying 'You shouldn’t do that’ is zero to none,” she says. “What’s likely to happen is they’ll thumb their noses at us and that the only power to stop them is law enforcement.”

Nonprofit Imperative gathers its information principally from public documents...some of which are directly quoted. Virtually all cited are in some phase of criminal proceedings; some have not been charged, however. Cites in various media: Featured in print, broadcast, and online media outlets, including: Vermont Public Radio, Miami Herald, National Public Radio, Huffington Post, The Sun News, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Wall Street Journal (Profile, News and Photos), FOX2, ABC Spotlight on the News, WWJ Radio, Ethics World, Aspen Philanthropy Newsletter, Harvard Business Review, Current Affairs, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, St. Petersburg Times, B, USA Today Topics,, Responsive Philanthropy Magazine, New York Times...and many more Nonprofits: On the Brink (2006) Silence: The Impending Threat to the Charitable Sector (2011)
