Just found a great article about the finances of the Clinton Foundation (Clinton Group)

We know this will keep coming up and this is the best one I've seen.

3. It hires staff and does the charitable work itself, assuring efficient use of donations.

That is why "the American Institute of Philanthropy, says that 89 percent of the foundation's money goes toward its charitable mission and gave the foundation an A rating for 2013."

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinton_Foundation

It is a rare charity that can claim 89% of its money goes to it's mission. Most spend a much smaller portion of their money on their mission.

5. I was going to apply

for a job with them years ago. I never bought all the hate-tripe because that's all it is.

Thanks for posting the truth.

6. Most entities who provide funding to non-profits

want to see a minimum of 75% of funds raised to support their programs/mission.

The fact that the Clinton Foundation funds mission in the 80th percentile is impressive.

8. Thanks so much for this.

I have bookmarked this article for the future. As you say, it will keep coming up - and always with the most negative spin possible.

9. The hardest fact to digest is the Clinton foundation is getting donations from the same

Groups Sanders wants to tax to give "free" services to those in need. The Clinton Foundation gives help without the politics.
