High Concern Advisory for:
A Magic City Christmas

On April 5, 2018, the Minot Daily News reported on the operations of A Magic City Christmas, an alleged charity, in an article titled, "Attorney General outlines fraud investigation." It has come to our attention that this organization is not registered with the IRS, but is soliciting from the general public in violation of federal tax law. For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the Minot Daily News article.

  • On January 8, 2019, The Minot Daily News published an article titled, "Consumer case stays alive for more filings." For more information, please see The Minot Daily News article.

  • On August 14, 2020, The Minot Daily News published an article titled, "ND Attorney General seeks fines, costs from Maras Lindeman, former Minot event organizer." For more information, please see The Minot Daily News article.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
