CN Advisory: High Concern

Act of Valor

, UT 



On July 19, 2018, The Federal Trade Commission reported on the operations of Act of Valor, an alleged charity, in a press statement titled, "FTC and States Combat Fraudulent Charities That Falsely Claim to Help Veterans and Servicemembers." 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 Federal Trade Commission press statement.

  • On December 16, 2020, Southern Utah Now published an article titled, "St. George man indicted by federal grand jury running fake veteran charities." For more information, please see the Southern Utah Now 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.
