What does the Clinton Foundation actually do?

Amy Sterling Casil wrote an excellent series of articles for Medium about what the Clinton Foundation, which takes in as much money as the March of Dimes, actually spends its money on.

There is a lot to dig through, but, in summary, she described the foundation’s business model as follows:

  • clintonfoundation.cf-logo-bigTake in as much money as possible, by whatever means.
  • Expend as little money as possible on anything other than what the Principals want to spend money on, typically self-promotion and world travel.
  • Take credit for stuff somebody told you they do.  Avoid expending funds on any outside activities.

Charity Navigator, an organization that rates the effectiveness of charities, does not rate the Clinton Foundation because of lack of information.   Casil contrasted it to the Carter Foundation, which does good work and is scrupulously documented.
