Charities Impacted by Madoff Scandal Receive Help From Foundations

The Washington Post reports today that several nonprofit organizations that were victims of the Bernard Madoff investment scandal are receiving financial assistance from larger foundations. Human Rights Watch, The Center for Constitutional Rights, Brennan Center for Justice, and the Advancement Project are benefiting from an on-line, end of year campaign run by MoveOn.org. The fundraising drive raised donations that were then partially matched by large foundations – a total of $1.2 million will go to the four nonprofit groups.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
