See Details About This CN Advisory

On December 23, 2015, Pleasanton Weekly reported on the operations of ABAG Finance Corporation, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Ex-ABAG director pleads guilty to embezzlement charges." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see Pleasanton Weekly article.

  • On March 28, 2016, Palo Alto Online published an article titled, "Former ABAG official sentenced in $3.9 million embezzlement.." For more information, please see Palo Alto Online 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. 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.
