TIAA is proud to support Charity Fraud Awareness Week 2023, which runs between 27th November and 1st December 2023.

The campaign aims to bring together everyone involved in the charity and not for profit sectors to raise awareness and share good practice in tackling fraud and cybercrime.

All charities, NGOs and not-for-profits are susceptible to fraud and can be targeted. Those providing services and supporting local communities may be especially vulnerable to fraudsters attempting to exploit current national and global crises to carry out fraud and cybercrime.

During the week, TIAA will be taking part by posting advice and information to our   and LinkedIn social media accounts using the hashtag #StopCharityFraud

Our specialists are available to provide advice and assurance on fraud prevention, cybercrime awareness and security management.  You can contact us via our contacts page to find out more.

Other useful resources for charities looking to understand more about fraud in the charity and not-for-profit sectors include:
