High Concern Advisory for:
United Way of Detroit

On July 1, 2021, ABC12 News reported on the operations of United Way of Detroit, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "Attorney general: 10 fake charities operating in Michigan dissolved." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the ABC12 News article.

  • On September 14, 2020, The Michigan Department of the Attorney General issued a press release titled, "Attorney General Nessel Aims to Dissolve Fraudulent Organizations Posing as Charitable Nonprofits." For more information, please see The Michigan Department of the Attorney General press release.

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.
