On August 3, 2019, it came to the attention of Charity Navigator that Veterans Defense Project is the subject of an investigation by the Minnesota Legislature according to an article titled, "Veterans charity under scrutiny after DOC official suspected of lobbying for her husband." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Twin Cities Pioneer Press article.

This charity has received a Moderate Concern Advisory due to an open or pending investigation regarding allegations of possible illegal activity, improper conduct, organizational mismanagement, or other matters of concern. Please note that this investigation has not concluded and that the allegations being investigated have not been confirmed by the U.S. legal system. Charity Navigator aims to provide donors and users with as much information as possible in order to make an informed giving decision. This advisory will be updated once we become aware that the investigation is completed. 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.
