Our Donors and the Important Work They Make Possible

Share

The Clinton Foundation has a strong commitment to transparency and accountability. In fact, we take measures that make us one of the most transparent nonprofits in the world—including disclosing all of our donors on a quarterly basis. We released the latest update just today. 

Compared to this time last year, donations are up—both in terms of the amount donated and the number of donors. And, as was the case in previous years, about 90 percent of donations were in the amount of $100 or less.

But whether it’s $5 or $5,000, every single donation matters, and collectively they are enabling us to help more people in more places live their best life story. As a thank you to our donors, and to celebrate the great work we’re doing, together, I’m happy to share photos highlighting some of our efforts over the past three months:
