Historical CN Advisories

09/29/2016-11/01/2016: High Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the High Concern CN Advisory for the Montgomery County Food Bank on November 1, 2016 because the issues that prompted the CN Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • Montgomery County Food Bank removed Charity Navigator's 4 star logo from its website.

Charity Navigator had published a CN Advisory on Montgomery County Food Bank because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • It has come to our attention that Montgomery County Food Bank is inappropriately using Charity Navigator’s 4-star logo when we either do not rate, or have not rated this charity before. Using this logo is a privilege reserved for charities that have received our 4-star rating. Montgomery County Food Bank is not and has never been rated by Charity Navigator and therefore has never received a 4-star rating. For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory on Montgomery County Food Bank.
