2010-12 11/21/2013 --Donor Advisory

Prior to 9/1/2016, Charity Navigator issued Advisories under the name CN Watchlist and Donor Advisory. For more information on the CN Advisory system click here. This charity was issued a DA.

This donor advisory was published on Thursday, November 21, 2013

Armenian Assembly of America has historically reported fundraising expenses on their Form 990.  But its FY 2011 and 2012 Forms 990 list no fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities only rarely are able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We have reached out to Armenian Assembly of America for clarification, but we did not receive an adequate explanation. We are therefore unable to evaluate Armenian Assembly of America and thus have issued this Donor Advisory.
