See Details About This CN Advisory

On May 19, 2015, the Federal Trade Commission reported on the findings of its investigation of Children's Cancer Fund of America in a press release titled, "FTC, All 50 States and D.C. Charge Four Cancer Charities With Bilking Over $187 Million from Consumers." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see the Federal Trade Commission press release and the FTC complaint.

  • On March 30, 2016, the FTC published a press release titled, "FTC, States Settle Claims Against Two Entities Claiming to Be Cancer Charities; Orders Require Entities to Be Dissolved and Ban Leader from Working for Non-Profits." For more information, please see the FTC's website.


The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement 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.
