Archived CN Advisory

07/15/2015-08/01/2017: Moderate Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Moderate Concern CN Advisory for American Association for Cancer Support on August 1, 2017, because the CN Advisory has been in place for more than a year (since July 17, 2015).

Charity Navigator had published a Moderate Concern CN Advisory on American Association for Cancer Support because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • On July 7, 2015, it came to the attention of Charity Navigator that American Association for Cancer Support, is the subject of an investigation by the Tennessee Secretary of State's Office according to an article titled, "Cancer Nonprofit Investigated by Tennessee Secretary of State's Office." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Wall Street Journal article.
