CN Advisory: High Concern

Sunset Mesa Funeral Foundation

155 Merchant Drive Montrose, CO 81401

EIN: 26-4795552


On May 15, 2012, the IRS automatically revoked the federal tax exemption status of Sunset Mesa Funeral Foundation for "failure to file a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the IRS register for tax-exempt organizations.

  • On February 2, 2018, The Denver Post published an article titled, "A Colorado funeral home doubles as a broker of body parts — and both businesses are being investigated." For more information, please see The Denver Post article.

  • On February 26, 2018, The FBI Denver Office published a press statement titled, "Seeking Victim Information in Sunset Mesa Funeral Directors Investigation." For more information, please see The FBI Denver Office press statement.

  • On February 5, 2019, The Montrose Daily Press published an article titled, "Sunset Mesa Funeral Foundation suit adds parties." For more information, please see The Montrose Daily Press article.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance 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. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
