On November 25, 2015, The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported on the operations of Donate for a Cause, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "Bozeman residents accused of timeshare tax fraud." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The Bozeman Daily Chronicle article.

  • Donate for a Cause has posted a statement to their website describing the final judgment issued by the Department of Justice.

  • On September 29, 2016, The United States Department of Justice published a press statement titled, "Federal Court Shuts Down Abusive Tax Scheme Involving Improper Deductions for Donating Timeshares." For more information, please see The United States Department of Justice press statement.

  • On November 29, 2016, The Bozeman Daily Chronicle published an article titled, "Court files second injunction in Bozeman timeshare case." For more information, please see The Bozeman Daily Chronicle article.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance 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.
