CN Advisory: High Concern

Alternative Educational Programming

EIN: 05-0516529


On January 23, 2017, The Providence Journal reported on the operations of Alternative Educational Programming, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Gallison to admit stealing from a friend, the poor and a disabled client." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Providence Journal article.

  • On March 9, 2017, The Providence Journal published an article titled, "Former R.I. House Finance chairman admits guilt to nine counts of theft, fraud." For more information, please see The Providence Journal article.

  • On June 5, 2017, WPRI 12 published an article titled, "Judge will weigh several factors to decide Gallison's prison sentence." For more information, please see the WPRI 12 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.
