On May 24, 2018, The Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney's Office Northern District of Georgia issued a press statement titled, "Operator of bogus charity pleads guilty to defrauding multiple companies." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory on Our Genesis Project. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney's Office Northern District of Georgia press statement.

  • On August 27, 2018, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published an article titled, "Metro Atlanta man gets prison for $670K fake charity scam." For more information, please see The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 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.
