Bill Clinton pledges to match gifts to foundation
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday he will put up a $2 match for every $1 donated to his foundation through the end of the year
Clinton established the foundation 10 years ago as the anchor of his post-presidency work. The organization has a range of initiatives, including working with governments to improve access to treatment for people with AIDS and malaria, supporting small businesses in developing areas and looking for ways to combat climate change.
"When I started the Clinton Foundation, I had only a vision of what I wanted to accomplish, but I knew that we would help save lives, solve important problems, and give more people everywhere the chance to live their dreams," Clinton wrote in an email sent Tuesday by the foundation.
Clinton, who served as Arkansas' governor before he became president, said his foundation has made that vision a reality.
"But we are far from finished," he said.
