On September 10, 2018, SF Gate reported on the charges of improper conduct allegedly taking place at Alcor Life Extension Foundation Inc. in an article titled, "Calif. scientist's son suing cryonics nonprofit for incorrectly freezing father's body." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see the SF Gate article.


This charity has received a Moderate Concern Advisory due to an open or pending investigation regarding allegations of possible illegal activity, improper conduct, organizational mismanagement, or other matters of concern.
