On May 25, 2016, The Denver Post reported on the operations of Ecumenical Refugee and Immigration Services, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Woman gets 90 days in jail for charity scam that netted $1 million." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Denver Post article.

  • On February 2, 2018, The Denver Channel published an article titled, "DA embezzlement investigation continues into man also raising money for fallen deputy." For more information, please see The Denver Channel article.

  • On October 11, 2018, The Denver Patch published an article titled, "Former Top Denver Cop Accused of $50K Charity Embezzlement." For more information, please see The Denver Patch article.

  • On March 2, 2020, The Denver Channel published an article titled, "Former Denver-area charity director gets deferred sentence in theft case." For more information, please see The Denver Channel article.

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.
