ORT America is the largest fundraising arm of World ORT and in this capacity raises money for the global ORT network. For many years, Bramson ORT has been one of the not-for-profit institutions for which ORT America has raised money. Recently, ORT America was informed by the Board of Bramson ORT that it had lost its accreditation by the New York State Board of Regents. ORT America has been assured that the students at Bramson ORT have been taken care of academically and that their credits have been transferred elsewhere if necessary. However, concerns about the future of Bramson ORT remain. At this time, the Board of Trustees of ORT America recommends that funds not be directed to Bramson ORT but to sustaining and expanding ORT projects in the United States and throughout the world.
