A letter from President Clinton on our work

“Over the last two decades, but especially over the last year, we’ve heard the same thing over and over from our partners: that the Clinton Foundation has a unique ability to bring people together to make a difference. That’s why, as we look ahead to the Foundation’s next 20 years, we’re sharpening our focus on partnership-building across all our programs.

Here’s what that will look like.”
