CN Advisory: High Concern


50 Broadway Suite 803A
New York, NY 10004

EIN: 05-0554058


On August 26, 2019, The New York Post reported on the operations of nycharities.org, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "Website collected donations for charities — and made off with the money: lawsuit." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The New York Post article.

  • On October 4, 2019, The New York State Office of the Attorney General published a press release titled, "Attorney General James Sues NYCharities.org For Missing Funds." For more information, please see The New York State Office of the Attorney General press release.

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. 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.
