It simply means that the organization does not meet our criteria. A lack of a rating does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

Archived CN Advisory

09/23/2016-11/01/2019: Moderate Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Moderate Concern CN Advisory for the Vigilance Hose Co. No. 1 Club on November 1, 2019, because the CN Advisory has been in place for more than a year (since September 23, 2016).

Charity Navigator had published a Moderate Concern CN Advisory on Vigilance Hose Co. No. 1 Club because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • On August 18, 2016, The Morning Call reported that Vigilance Hose Co. No. 1 Club was, or may continue to be, a subject of a material diversion of assets in an article titled, "DA: Nazareth mayor charged with theft applies for first-time offender's program." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see The Morning Call article.

    • On May 4, 2017, The Express-Times published an article titled, "Lehigh Valley clubs cited for alleged gambling violations." For more information, please see The Express-Times article.
