On March 7, 2019, The New York Times reported on the operations of Dream Center Education Holdings, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "A College Chain Crumbles, and Millions in Student Loan Cash Disappears." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The New York Times 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.
