The Clinton Foundation

President Bill Clinton established the William J. Clinton Foundation in 2001 to identify and take action on global problems he could uniquely influence through his experience as a global leader and public servant. Today, the Clinton Foundation works to strengthen the capacity of governments and individuals to alleviate poverty, improve global health, strengthen economies, and protect the environment.

Under President Clinton’s leadership, the Foundation initiates change by fostering partnerships among governments, businesses, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and private citizens. The Foundation focuses these collaborations to develop programs that leverage the expertise, resources, and passions of all sectors and turn good intentions into measurable results.

To accomplish its goals, the Clinton Foundation has established separate initiatives, each with a distinct mission but all reflecting President Clinton’s founding vision: to implement sustainable programs that improve access worldwide to investment, opportunity, and lifesaving services now and for future generations. Working in diverse geographic regions and responding to local needs, the initiatives address targeted challenges in the Foundation’s key areas of focus: economic empowerment, education, environment and energy, health systems, and nutrition.

Grant Policy

The Clinton Foundation generally does not make grants to outside organizations; rather, we direct our financial resources to the implementation of our own initiatives and programs on the ground.

If you are interested in seeking support for your own projects, we strongly encourage you to research and contact one of the many international philanthropic organizations that provide this kind of funding.

Clinton Global Initiative University

Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative, which brings together world leaders to take action on global challenges, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world.

Each year, CGI U hosts a meeting for students, national youth organizations, and university officials to discuss solutions to pressing global issues. The third annual CGI U Meeting was held at the University of Miami from April 16-18, 2010. At this meeting, nearly 1,500 attendees came together to make a difference in CGI U's five global challenge areas: Education, Environment & Climate Change, Peace & Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health.
