Archived CN Advisories

09/01/2016-06/01/2018: Moderate Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Moderate Concern CN Advisory for The Sentinel Group on June 1, 2018, because the CN Advisory has been in place for more than a year (since July 1, 2015) and because the issues that prompted the CN Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • The organization has resumed reporting fundraising expenses on the Form 990.

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

  • The Sentinel Group has historically reported fundraising expenses on their federal tax return called the Form 990. However, The Sentinel Group’s Fiscal Year Ending December 2013 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 The Sentinel Group for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.

07/01/2015-07/14/2017: Moderate Concern Advisory

  • The Sentinel Group has historically reported fundraising expenses on their federal tax return called the Form 990. However, The Sentinel Group’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 The Sentinel Group for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.
