See Details About This CN Advisory

On February 22, 2015, The New York Times reported on the operations of Federation Employment and Guidance Service, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "As a Social Service Agency Collapses, a Union Leader Worries for Its Workers." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The New York Times article.

  • On March 13, 2015, Politico published an article titled, "The wrecking of a blue-chip New York nonprofit." For more information, please see Politico article.

  • On March 18, 2015, The Federation Employment and Guidance Service reported that it filed for Chapter 11 relief in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York. For more information, visit the Federation Employment and Guidance Service's website.


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.
