In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Low Concern CN Advisory for the The Clinton Foundation on December 20, 2019, because the CN Advisory has been in place for more than a year (since January 22, 2018).
Charity Navigator had published a Low Concern CN Advisory on The Clinton Foundation because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:
On January 4, 2018, Reuters reported on the operations of The Clinton Foundation, in an article titled, "Justice Dept. launches new Clinton Foundation probe: The Hill." For this reason, we have issued a Low Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the Reuters article.
The Clinton Foundation referred Charity Navigator to the statement they provided at the time of these news reports:
Statement from the Clinton Foundation:
“Time after time, the Clinton Foundation has been subjected to politically motivated allegations, and time after time these allegations have been proven false. None of this has made us waver in our mission to help people. The Clinton Foundation has demonstrably improved the lives of millions of people across America and around the world while earning top ratings from charity watchdog groups in the process. There are real issues in our society needing attention that the Clinton Foundation works hard to solve every day. So we're going to stay focused on what really matters.”
