    The Dallas Chapter has been working with the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB), Salvation Army (SA), and a new partnership with Minnie's Food Pantry (MFP) and we are happy to bring our chapter members these opportunities.

    As you can imagine, North Texas children, families, and seniors are in need of our help. Not just during the holidays, but for those who are currently affected by COVID-19. Aside from the increase in families needing assistance, volunteer groups are canceling fundraising opportunities in support of social distancing and many companies are no longer supporting offsite activities during this time to protect the health of their staff. Donations are dwindling as stores don’t have a surplus to provide as they did before. It is my hope that you will support our new Virtual Food and Gift Donation Drive so that we can continue in our efforts to support North Texas communities. 

    Due to our chapter not having in-person activities, you will now be able to make monetary donations online or make food purchases from an Amazon Wish List and have the items delivered directly to the NTFB or MFP.

    North Texas Food Bank

    The Dallas Chapter will be targeting these donations to be given to a needy family for Thanksgiving. 

    1. Choose/check the gift option. 
    2. Select the NTFB as the address for items to be delivered. 
    3. Indicate Dallas Chapter ACFE in the “Gift Message” section and your name in the “From” section.   
    • Drop off food donations Monday-Friday 8:30 AM-4:30 PM.  Mention that you are donating on behalf of the Dallas Chapter, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

    Salvation Army

    This year, we will be collecting funds to help needy families for Christmas. Please make your monetary donation by December 15, 2020.    

    Minnie’s Food Pantry 

    ​Minnie’s Food Pantry is a local organization that has been in existence for over twelve years and is located in Plano, Texas. They have provided over 11 million healthy meals and educational resources as well as received several awards for charity. In an effort to provide for those in need, MFP has partnered with Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Mark Cuban, Emmitt Smith, Kevin Bacon, and Martha Stewart. 

    The Dallas Chapter will be targeting and collecting items for those families affected by COVID-19.  This will be an on-going fundraiser throughout 2020-2021. 

    ​Please use the links below to donate funds or goods. Every dollar = 3 meals! 

    Please contact Andrea Prater if you have additional questions about any of these fundraisers. 

    Thank you, and we appreciate your support in helping our North Texas communities this year!

    On Friday February 28, members of the Dallas Chapter visited Feed My Starving Children in Plano to spent the afternoon as volunteer packers!

    Thank you to our Chapter volunteers and thank you to Feed My Starving Children for the work you do around the world!

    The Dallas Chapter of the ACFE is proud to be celebrating its 30th program year of providing local CFEs with network and education opportunities! We're also happy to celebrate the 30th Annual DFW Fraud Conference on May 8, 2020!

    As part of this, the Dallas Chapter will be recognizing local CFEs who have made a significant impact on the anti-fraud profession and the DFW community during the 30-year history of the chapter.

    And we want to hear from you! If you know of a CFE who deserves to be recognized at the May conference, please contact president@dallasacfe.org with their name and information on why you've nominated them.

    Those recognized will be invited to the conference and (schedule permitting) be invited to join a panel to discuss the history of the anti-fraud profession in North Texas.

    We hope this program will be a meaningful way to honor those in the profession who have shaped the community and the careers of those that have come since.

    International Fraud Awareness Week is here! In support of Fraud Week, the Dallas Chapter worked with over 20 local mayors and city councils to issue proclamations recognizing International Fraud Awareness Week in their jurisdictions. 

    Members of the Dallas Chapter also joined city council meetings to issue the proclamations and present to community members about the risks of fraud.

    We have an on-going Twitter thread sharing the proclamations issued by local cities. Check out the post and 'Like' or 'Retweet' to share your city's support!
