See Details About This CN Advisory

On June 26, 2017, The New York Times reported on the charges of improper conduct allegedly taking place at Alavi Foundation, in an article titled, "Manhattan Skyscraper Linked to Iran Can Be Seized by U.S., Jury Finds." 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 New York Times article.

  • The Alavi Foundation has published statements pertaining to this case on its website.

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. 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.
