A preliminary report from the International Business Times suggests donations to the Clinton Foundation have dried up since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election.
The IB Times contacted 48 major corporations which had donated to the foundation in the past. Thirty did not respond or declined comment. Of the 18 which did respond, “all said they had not made new donations,” the Times reports.
From the IB Times:
Most of the companies that have previously donated to the Clinton Foundation didn’t contribute in the second quarter of 2017, according to the organization’s website, although some, including Acxiom Corporation, BTIG LLC, Google and Starkey Hearing Technologies, have. Cities, countries, foundations and other nonprofits also donate to the foundation, and some contributed in 2017.
It’s impossible to know precisely what’s happened to Clinton Foundation fundraising in the year since Secretary Clinton lost. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the foundation submits financial information to the Internal Revenue Service once per year, and information on both 2016 and 2017 is not yet publicly available. But International Business Times contacted nearly 50 major corporations that had previously donated to the foundation, asking if they had made new contributions after the 2016 presidential campaign. Thirty of them did not respond or declined to comment on the questions. Of the 18 that did, all said they had not made new donations.
[…]Companies that told IBT they have not donated since the 2016 election include Boeing, Chevron, Daimler Trucks North America, Dell, Duke Energy, General Electric, Humana, Lockheed Martin and UPS (via its foundation).
Pure coincidence, no doubt!
