The Clintons and Charity
Tuesday, April 04th, 2017 | Author:

These are figures from an official copy of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation for the tax year 2014.  Anyone may obtain a copy of the tax return from the National Center for Charitable Statistics website.

Total revenue (line 12) ………………..$177,804, 612.00
Total grants to charity (line 13) ………..$5,160,385.00
Total expenses ………………………………$91,281,145.00

Expenses include:
Salaries (line 15)………………$34,838,106.00
Fund raising fees (line 16a)……$850,803.00
Other expenses (line 17)…….$50,431,851.00

They list 486 employees (line 5).  Evidently, it took 486 people who were paid $34.8 million along with $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1 million.   To make it even more disconcerting, the Foundation granted less than 3% of total revenue to charities!  Most people would interpret a foundation with these numbers as a scam.

Here’s the link to the actual tax return at the National Center for Charitable Statistics.
