See Details About This CN Advisory

On January 17, 2015, The New York Times reported on the operations of Architecture for Humanity, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "A Leader in Socially Conscious Architecture Is Closing Amid Financial Woes." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The New York Times article.


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. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
