Who We Are
FiduciaSolutions was collaboratively developed by a group of concerned, community-minded individuals with input from the United Way Worldwide in an effort to combat the epidemic of fraud and embezzlement crimes against charitably-focused, nonprofit organizations and small businesses.
The architect of FiduciaSolutions has caught major occurrences of fraud and embezzlement throughout his professional career and studied numerous, extensive violations of public trust as an active member of the community. Believing there had to be a cost-effective way to protect the organizations whose missions directly impact the most vulnerable in our communities and for small-to-mid-sized businesses lacking the resources of larger corporations, FiduciaSolutions was created.
Robert Berdelle, EVP and CFO of United Way Worldwide, strongly believes FiduciaSolutions fulfills a protective need that has been missing from United Way organizations and their affiliated partner agencies. He recommends the integration of FiduciaSolutions for United Way agencies worldwide.

A Letter from the Founder
My name is Dan Healy, and for the past 20 years I've served as an auditor, corporate fraud investigator and a CPA. About 12 years ago a small group of colleagues and I recognized that many of our most cherished nonprofit and small business organizations had at one time or another been victimized by fraud or embezzlement. Some of these organizations were so severely damaged they were forced to close. Even the organizations that were able to survive rarely rebounded to their previous strength or effectiveness.
To gain a sense of the size of the problem we informally tracked reports of nonprofit embezzlements in the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper over a seven-year period (2006-2013). We were astonished to learn that over $23 million in embezzlement losses were reported over that period. Because experts believe that many embezzlements are never identified or reported, we felt the $23 million reported was possibly just the tip of the iceberg!
Why are smaller organizations unable to benefit from the internal control structures that effectively protect larger organizations? Is it possible to introduce the most effective controls to small nonprofits and businesses in a cost effective way?
We believe we have to better protect the organizations that have direct positive impact on the most vulnerable within our communities.We built FiduciaSolutions as our answer to these critical questions. We believe we have created an affordable and effective internal control process. This process has been successfully implemented at United Way Worldwide and a variety of nonprofit and small businesses.
FiduciaSolutions is confident that our services will have a positive impact on your organization. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your organization. We look forward to working with you.
