HIGH ADVISORY

High Concern Advisory for:
Bishops Fund

On February 24, 2020, The Steubenville Herald-Star reported on the operations of Bishops Fund, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "Bransfield’s ‘Bishops Fund’ being dissolved by diocese." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The Steubenville Herald-Star article.

  • On August 11, 2020, The Washington Post published an article titled, "Disgraced West Virginia bishop Michael Bransfield was told a year ago to make restitution. His successor says Bransfield has gone incommunicado.." For more information, please see The Washington Post 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.
 
 Important note on the timeliness of ratings

The IRS is significantly delayed in processing nonprofits' annual tax filings (Forms 990). As a result, the Accountability & Finance score for Bishops Fund is outdated and the overall rating may not be representative of its current operations. Please check with the charity directly for any questions you may have.
