Clinton Foundation shuns veterans groups for foreign causes that allow less transparency–47jh.,b43
The Clinton Foundation has collected more than $2 billion in revenue since it formed — but has given only the tiniest fraction to veterans groups, instead preferring to focus on international causes and in-house operations that provide far more control and less transparency.
Meanwhile, a separate private charity, the Clinton Family Foundation, has donated about $100,000 to veterans groups, according to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
An examination of the foundation’s 990s, the IRS form that tax-exempt 501(c)3 charities must file annually, do not show any direct grants to veterans groups since 1998, when President Bill Clinton established the organization.
Most of its domestic grants are directed at health care and anti-poverty organizations and disaster relief, and amount to a small percentage of its cash. The foundation took in some $338 million in 2014 and doled out just $4 million in 10 grants in the U.S. — with the largest being $2 million to a health care center in Oregon.
