See Details About This CN Advisory

Charities are required to file an annual federal tax return (the Form 990) with the IRS. A 501(c)(3) public charity must file their Form 990 by the 15th day of the 5th month after the organization's accounting period ends. Upon filing Form 8868, an organization can request a 3-month extension, which is granted automatically. An organization can file for another 3-month extension, but it will be reviewed and the application must show reasonable cause for the additional time required. We have reached out to ALEH Foundation for further clarification as to why we have not received their most recent Form 990 from the IRS yet, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory. For more information on this, please see page 6 of the IRS Form 990 instructions.

  • On September 11, 2013, The New York Daily News published an article titled, "Parents of disabled girl file $5M lawsuit claiming Aleh Foundation used image to solicit donations without permission." For more information, please see The New York Daily News article.

  • On November 19, 2013, The Jewish Week published an article titled, "Israeli Charity Breaks Bitterly With U.S. Arm." For more information, please see The Jewish Week article.

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 tool is not for questions about Charity Navigator, such as how we derived this charity’s rating. We will happily answer those questions if you contact us directly. Likewise, if you have questions for this charity, then we encourage you to contact the charity directly (we include the charity’s contact information in the upper left-hand corner of this page) since few charities regularly monitor this commenting tool.
