Lisa Tidball, director of communications at the Rye YMCA, released the following statement to MyRye.com regarding the alleged $190K fraud by former employee Lee Ann Borg.
Rye YMCA Statement
Early last year we discovered that the Rye YMCA had been the victim of fraud related to the misuse of a YMCA-issued corporate credit card, and we reported the matter to the Westchester County District Attorney's Office.
On Tuesday, February 26, 2019, a former employee of the Rye Y was charged with Grand Larceny.
We expect to be fully reimbursed for our loss by our insurance carrier, and we have taken corrective measures to make sure this does not happen again.
For more than 105 years, the Rye Y has served our community with distinction as an organization committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Among our highest priorities is being an ethical, trustworthy, and well-run nonprofit, and we will continue to build on that legacy of service.
At the request of the DA’s office we will not be commenting further, because of the ongoing criminal investigation.
