2009-12 11/02/2010 --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 Tuesday, November 2, 2010

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for Pasado's Safe Haven in April 2013 because  the Donor Advisory had been in place for more than a year (since November 2, 2010) and because the issues that prompted the Donor Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • More than a year has passed since Washington State's attorney general had completed its investigation and the charity has publicly shared the steps it has taken to address the concerns raised by the attorney general.
  • Visit the charity's site to read the attorney general's press release and Pasado's Safe Haven's response to the consent decree.

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

  • On October 29, 2010, The Daily Herald reported that Pasado's Safe Haven "has agreed to reform its fundraising and business practices as part of a settlement reached to close a 16-month investigation by the state attorney general’s office." For more information please see the attorney general's ruling and a related article in The Daily Herald.
