See Details About This CN Advisory
On September 1, 2016, CNN reported on the operations of National Vietnam Veterans Foundation, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "Veterans charity that gave less than 2% of revenue to veterans closes its doors for good." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the CNN article.
On November 10, 2016, Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman's Office published a press release titled, "A.G. Schneiderman Announces Settlements With Vietnam Veteran's Charity And Its Founder For Squandering Millions In Donations." For more information, please see the Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman's Office press release.
The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites.
