Clinton Foundation Donations Down 90% Since Peak
The Clinton Foundation’s finances are dwindling faster than Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations, their latest financial records indicate.
According to the Daily Caller:
The Clinton Foundation’s revenue dropped to a 16-year low in 2018 and reported a third-straight year of losses.
The Clinton Foundation reported $30.7 million in revenues in its recently-released 2018 Form 990 tax return, the lowest figure posted by the charity since 2002 when it raised $25.6 million.
The Clinton Foundation also posted its third straight year of losses of $16 million or more in 2018, bringing its total losses since 2016 to $49.6 million.
Certainly, the reactions of the Clintons to this news isn’t along the lines of “what difference, at this point, does it male?”
While the Clinton Foundation had previously raked in donations by the hundreds of millions from influential figures and governments globally, they dried up faster than the Colorado River following Hillary’s presidential loss. That’s certainly odd if those donors thought they were donating to a legitimate charity rather than trying to buy influence.
In all, donations are down 50% since the days of the Hillary campaign, and 90% from their all time peak. To say donations have been decimated would be an understatement.
Additionally, speaking fees billed through the Foundation also fell 90% since 2014.
Every couple of months there’s a story reporting rumors that Hillary Clinton is contemplating a 2020 run. I’d take those rumors with a pound of salt, but admittedly, politics aside, a run is probably the only thing that would save the Clinton Foundation at this point.
