The Clinton Foundation is not a C Corp. It is a not-for-profit public charity. It files a 990 return. The IRS applicable ruling is 501(c)3. The Foundation has “unrelated business income” and foreign investment funds that appear in its returns.

It makes any claims it likes via its website and merely adds language to its returns.

Most notably it claims outcomes in its tax return and public website related to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a separate 501(c)3 tax exempt charitable organization based in Portland, OR, and for the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), a separate 501(c)3 tax exempt charitable organization based in Boston, Massachusetts.

I don’t see anything like what you say in their Bylaws, which are attached to their original application for Federal tax exemption.

I am a former nonprofit executive with Kellogg United Way board member training experience, and have raised and appropriately spent many millions of dollars for legitimate charitable causes, and was for five years, a cross border for-profit business planner for small to medium enterprises in the U.S. Canada and Mexico.

I think I misunderstood the lack of knowledge and information that people have about a lot of business, charitable and tax matters when I first looked into the Clinton Foundation.

It is surely a poorly-run organization with a big administrative staff of people who don’t accomplish very much, and it is very loosely run and has misused a very large amount of money. But what you say is incorrect and as I said the other day about the Puerto Rican lineman contract: “nonstandard.” Apparently contracts outside the US are 100% “nonstandard” so this thing was and is par for the course. In affordable housing and social services, there is no such thing. Poor people don’t get doodly.
