On June 10, 2015, The StarTribune reported on the charges of improper conduct allegedly taking place at Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota, in an article titled, "Minnesota AG sues Epilepsy Foundation over link with Savers." 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 StarTribune article.

  • On June 25, 2015, The StarTribune published an article titled, "Savers stores settles Minnesota attorney general lawsuit, will modify donations practices." For more information, please see The StarTribune article.


The nature of these allegations of illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions.
