Harrison International has historically reported fundraising expenses on their federal tax return called the Form 990. However, Harrison International’s most recent Form 990 for 12/2017 does not list fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities are only rarely able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We have reached out to Harrison International for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.

The nature of the atypical financial reporting issues identified are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with information that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.

This donor advisory was published on Tuesday, July 31, 2012

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for Harrison International on June 1, 2014 because the Donor Advisory had been in place for more than a year (since July 31, 2012) and because the issues that prompted the Donor Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • The FY 2012 990 reports fundraising expenses.

Charity Navigator had published a Donor Advisory for this charity because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity: 

  • Harrison International historically reported fundraising expenses on their Form 990. But its FYE 2010 listed 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 had reached out to Harrison International for clarification, but we did not received an adequate explanation. We were therefore unable to evaluate Harrison International and thus issued a Donor Advisory.
