Why isn't this organization rated by Charity Navigator?

Charity Navigator only rates organizations that are classified as 501(c)(3) and able to accept tax-deductible donations.

Archived CN Advisory

08/07/2017-09/01/2019: High Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the High Concern CN Advisory for the Distinguished Flying Cross Society on September 3, 2019, because the CN Advisory has been in place for more than a year (since August 7, 2017).

Charity Navigator had published a High Concern CN Advisory on Distinguished Flying Cross Society because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • On July 25, 2017, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported on the operations of Distinguished Flying Cross Society, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Navy vet pleads guilty to embezzling from Distinguished Flying Cross Society." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The San Diego Union-Tribune article.
