2009-06 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 West Valley Child Crisis Center on March 1, 2012 because the Donor Advisory had been in place for more than a year (since September 20, 2011) and because the issues that prompted the Donor Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • The organization filed an amended FY 2010 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:

  • West Valley Child Crisis Center had historically reported fundraising expenses on their Form 990.  But the FY 2010 Form 990 lists 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 West Valley Child Crisis Center for clarification, but did not received an adequate explanation. We were therefore unable to evaluate West Valley Child Crisis Center and thus issued a Donor Advisory.
