During our analysis of United States Justice Foundation’s 12/2014 Form 990, the document revealed the following errors and omissions:
  • United States Justice Foundation’s Form 990 for fiscal year ending December 2014 reports a joint cost allocation that when reversed yields a negative program expense number.
We find such practices atypical when compared to how other charities operate, as well as a departure from how United States Justice Foundation has reported its finances in the past. We have reached out to United States Justice Foundation for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.

The nature of the atypical financial reporting issues identified are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with information that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.

  • United States Justice Foundation’s Form 990 for fiscal year ending December 2014 reports a joint cost allocation that when reversed yields a negative program expense number. Based on our experience, it is typically incorrect for charities to report joint costs of this nature. We have reached out to United States Justice Foundation, but we have not received an adequate explanation. We are therefore unable to evaluate United States Justice Foundation and thus have issued this Donor Advisory.
