Archived Donor Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories , Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for Youth Development Fund on September 1, 2016 because the initial issues that prompted the Donor Advisory have been resolved.

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

  • Charities are required to file the Form 990 (annual tax return) with the IRS annually. A 501(c)3 public charity must file their Form 990 by the 15th day of the 5th month after the organization's accounting period ends. An organization can request a three month extension, which is granted automatically, upon filing Form 8868 with the IRS. An organization can file for another three month extension, but it will be reviewed and the application must show reasonable cause for the additional time required. For more information on this, please see page 6 of the IRS Form 990 instructions .
  • Charity Navigator receives the Form 990 for all charities we rate on a monthly basis directly from the IRS. The last Form 990 for this charity we received was for the 2012 tax year. We have reached out to Youth Development Fund to obtain a more recent Form 990, but we have either not received a reply, or if we did receive a reply, it was an inadequate explanation as to why it hasn't filed a more recent return with the IRS. We are therefore unable to evaluate Youth Development Fund and thus have issued this Donor Advisory.
