On September 20, 2019, The New York Post reported on the charges of improper conduct taking place at Survivors of the Shield in an article titled, "Widow says $400K theft from NYPD charity was for special needs grandkid." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory on Survivors of the Shield. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The New York Post article.

  • On March 22, 2019, CBS News published an article titled, "New York woman accused of stealing $410,000 from charity for fallen police families." For more information, please see the CBS News 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.
