On September 28, 2017, WNEM reported on the findings of the the Michigan Attorney General's Office’s investigation of American Veterans Foundation in an article titled, "Attorney General issues Cease and Desist against American Veterans Foundation." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see the WNEM article.

  • On July 19, 2018, The Federal Trade Commission published a list of enforcement actions, which includes the American Veterans Foundation. For more information, please see The Federal Trade Commission list.

  • On July 19, 2018, The California Attorney General's Office published a press statement summarizing recent enforcement actions. For more information, please see The California Attorney General's Office press statement.

  • On March 28, 2019, The Federal Trade Commission issued a press release titled, "FTC, States Continue Fight against Sham Charities; Shut Down Operations That Falsely Claimed to Help Disabled Police Officers and Veterans." For more information, please see The Federal Trade Commission press release.

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.
