On March 4, 2019, The United States Department of Justice reported on the charges of improper conduct taking place at Big Apple Music Awards Foundation in a press release titled, "Non-Profit Organization Operator Pleads Guilty for Her Role in Armenian for-Profit U.S. Visa Fraud Scheme." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory on Big Apple Music Awards Foundation. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The United States Department of Justice press release.

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. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
