On July 20, 2015, The New York Times reported on the findings of the New York Attorney General’s investigation of National Children's Leukemia Foundation in an article titled, "New York Attorney General Accuses Brooklyn Children's Charity of Fraud." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The New York Times article.
On December 17, 2015, the New York Attorney General's office published a press release titled, "A.G. Schneiderman Announces $1 Million Settlement With Officials of So-Called Children’s Leukemia Foundation And Their Auditor." For more information, please see the New York Attorney General's press release.
The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement 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.
