Archived CN Advisories

09/01/2016-07/01/2018: Moderate Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Moderate Concern CN Advisory for JCC MetroWest on July 1, 2018, because the CN Advisory has been in place for more than a year (since April 1, 2013) and because the issues that prompted the CN Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • JCC MetroWest has now filed at least 3 years of Forms 990 reporting fundraising expenses.

Charity Navigator had published a Moderate Concern CN Advisory on JCC MetroWest because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • JCC MetroWest has historically reported fundraising expenses on their federal tax return called the Form 990. However, JCC MetroWest’s Fiscal Year 2011, 2012, and 2013 Forms 990 do not list fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities are only rarely able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We have reached out to JCC MetroWest for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.

04/01/2013-05/17/2017: Moderate Concern Advisory

  • JCC MetroWest has historically reported fundraising expenses on their federal tax return called the Form 990. However, JCC MetroWest’s most recent Form 990 does not list fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities are only rarely able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We have reached out to JCC MetroWest for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.
