Charitable organizations hold and distribute assets for public benefit, playing a vital role in our economy and in people’s lives in general. Unfortunately, some charities lack sufficient internal controls. 

State statutory and common law grant attorneys general oversight authority of charitable organizations and assets, including the authority to investigate misappropriation of charitable funds, breaches of fiduciary duty by directors and officers, and fraud in charitable solicitation as well as oversight over conflicts and related-party transactions.
