On March 26, 2019, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported on the operations of The Jewish Federation of Fort Worth and Tarrant County, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Woman who took $1 million from Fort Worth Jewish charity gets three years in prison." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Fort Worth Star-Telegram article.

  • On October 31, 2018, KARE published an article titled, "Feds: Nearly $1 million stolen from Jewish charity in Fort Worth.." For more information, please see the KARE 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.
