For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The New York Times article.

  • On March 13, 2015, Politico published an article titled, "The wrecking of a blue-chip New York nonprofit." For more information, please see the Politico article.

  • On March 18, 2015, The Federation Employment and Guidance Service reported that it filed for Chapter 11 relief in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York. For more information, visit the Federation Employment and Guidance Service's website.

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.
