2008-12 09/20/2011 --Donor Advisory

Prior to 9/1/2016, Charity Navigator issued Advisories under the name CN Watchlist and Donor Advisory. For more information on the CN Advisory system click here. This charity was issued a DA.

This donor advisory was published on Tuesday, September 20, 2011

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation in February 2012 because the organization filed an amended FY 2009 Form 990 with the IRS which reports fundraising expenses.

Charity Navigator had published a Donor Advisory for this charity because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation historically reported fundraising expenses on their Forms 990. But its FYE 2009 Form 990 listed no fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities only rarely are able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We reached out to Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation for clarification, but did not received an adequate explanation. We were therefore unable to evaluate Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation and thus issued a donor advisory.
