Summary Saintly Church is experiencing declining revenues and increasing expenses, and several fraud risk factors are present. Do these fraud risk factors indicate fraudulent activity by one or more of the key persons in the case, or could there be reasonable and legitimate explanations? The purpose of this case is to allow students to explore the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice within the context of a nonprofit institution by examining the role of Sandy Withers, CMA, as she attempts to help the church address these issues. By completing the case, students will identify potential underlying causes (both fraudulent and legitimate) of the declining revenues and increasing expenses, highlight weaknesses in internal controls, and discuss Withers's responsibilities and approaches to communication under the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice
