Human and Civil Rights : Advocacy and Education
The Center for Consumer Freedom has requested that Charity Navigator also disclose that its arrangement with the management firm is reviewed and approved annually by its independent officers and directors in a process that complies with the organization's conflict of interests policy, and its financial statements are audited each year by an independent CPA. Accordingly, please see relevant pages from the organization's 2011 Form 990 filing PDF files 2011 Page 6 and 2011 Schedule O for the former, and 2011 Page 3 for the latter.
On August 12, 2013, TIME Magazine reported on the operations of Center For Consumer Freedom, in an article titled, "Is the Humane Society Bad for Puppies? This Man Wants You to Think So." For more information, please see the TIME Magazine article.
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.
If even a third of the 7 million people who visited our site last year had donated a dollar to Charity Navigator, we would comfortably meet our annual budget and be able to do what so many of you ask us to do every day--rate more charities!
