Ensuring You Have Access to as Much Information as Possible to Inform Your Giving
Charity Navigator's Advisory Issuance Committee publishes reports of potential or confirmed misconduct being investigated by the media or governmental agencies.
Prior to issuing an Advisory, the Committee considers the following:
- The credibility and timeliness of the information.
- The nature, scope, and seriousness of the allegations or convictions.
- Whether or not the allegations have been proven.
- Other factors on a case-by-case basis.
It's important to note that Advisories are issued to equip donors with information to guide their giving decisions. It is not within the scope or objective of the Committee to independently assess the accuracy of the information. The objective of the committee is to determine if a donor might find such information helpful when considering a contribution to the organization.
Below is the iconography we use for Advisories. These can be seen on search results and on charity profile pages, along with additional information about the Advisory.
