On August 11, 2017, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on the bankruptcy of Goodwill of Southern Nevada in an article titled, "Goodwill Industries of Southern Nevada files for bankruptcy." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory on Goodwill of Southern Nevada. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Las Vegas Review-Journal article.

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. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
