Bill Clinton will match your contribution 2:1

Hillary, Chelsea, and I just talked

Clinton Foundation

President Bill Clinton
The three of us just talked about the Foundation, how it has grown, and the lives it has changed.

And we agree that there is so much more to be done so that more lives and more communities can improve.

Most importantly, we agree that the real secret to the Foundation's success is people like you. We will need your support more than ever in 2014 so we can build upon the progress we've made together this year. That's why I decided that matching your donations one-for-one isn't enough – I want to step up my matching gift offer to $2 for every $1 you give.

Make a contribution to support our amazing work and I will triple your donation – up to our new goal of $200,000.

What started more than 12 years ago with just 14 employees and an idea has grown into a remarkable organization that works with partners around the world to find lasting solutions to some of our most daunting global challenges.

With your support, we've been able to provide lifesaving AIDS medicine to 647,000 children worldwide; reduce the calories from drinks served in school cafeterias and vending machines in the United States by 90 percent; and offset more than 200,000 tons of carbon while empowering smallholder farmers with the tools they need to support their families and strengthen their communities.

This is just a small sampling of our work, and we know that there is still so much more we can do. The Clinton Foundation is working to help create brighter futures – but we'll need your help getting there.

Give today and I will personally match your donation $2 to $1, up to $200,000 until December 31st.

I look forward to accomplishing incredible things together in the coming year.

Bill Clinton
