The Clinton Global Initiative was founded in 2005 and has made over 3,100 commitments to programs, initiatives and community based change through partnering with member organizations. The CGI does not fund organizations directly.
The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation runs the following initiatives and programs, which it funds either directly or through partner organizations and frontline programs:
Over 5 million individuals have received HIV/AIDS treatment through the Clinton Foundation. Programs have been run in 19,000 schools in the US and over 55,000 small business owners, farmers and micro-entrepreneurs have received community-based support through the Foundation.
In 2002, just a year after Bill Clinton completed his presidential terms in the Oval Office, he attended the International AIDS Conference, where the prime minister of St. Kitts and Nevis requested Clinton’s help in building a global program that would address the HIV/AIDS pandemic and building a sustainable healthcare system for all. The late Nelson Mandela added his voice to the request and the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative was born, now known as the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI).
Over the decade that followed, President Clinton established the William Clinton Foundation, starting in Harlem, New York City, and has developed further initiatives along with his wife, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, and daughter Chelsea Clinton.
In 2013, the Clinton Foundation was renamed the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation to recognize the growing contribution and efforts of Secretary Clinton and a more senior leadership position for Chelsea Clinton, who is currently Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation.
