CN Advisory: High Concern

Indiana Endowment Fund

, IN 



On April 3, 2018, The United States Department of Justice reported on the operations of Indiana Endowment Fund, an alleged charity, in a statement titled, "Justice Department Sues to Stop Attorney From Promoting Nationwide Charitable Giving Tax Scheme." It has come to our attention that this organization is not registered with the IRS, but is soliciting from the general public in violation of federal tax law. For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The United States Department of Justice statement.

  • On April 29, 2019, Forbes published an article titled, "Mike Meyer's 'Ultimate Tax Plan' Involving Charitable LLCs And LPs Hit With DOJ Permanent Injunction." For more information, please see the Forbes 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. 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. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
