That’s gotta hurt: Clinton Foundation put on charity “watch list”

Above the rules.


And in the same category as Al Sharpton’s “charity.” OUCH!

The Clinton Foundation’s finances are so messy that the nation’s most influential charity watchdog put it on its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits last month, the New York Post reports. Charity Navigator, which rates nonprofits, refused to rate the Clinton Foundation because its “atypical business model . . . doesn’t meet our criteria.” Instead, it placed the Foundation on its “watch list,” which warns potential donors about investing in problematic charities.

The Clinton Foundation joins Al Sharpton’s troubled National Action Network on Charity Navigator’s list. It seems appropriate that two great con artists, Bill Clinton and Al Sharpton, should be thus be joined.

I wonder if this will affect donations to the Clinton Foundation? Nah. That would assume the donors were giving for charitable reasons, and not out of other… expectations.

I can almost hear the shrieks of offended self-entitlement coming from Chappaqua. They sound sweet. smiley thumbs up

    You are correct: this will not affect donations. Nonprofits like the one I work for are very keen to keep a high Charity Navigator rating, because foundations and regular donors want to know that their money is going toward a good cause and may use Charity Navigator as a way to judge that. People who donate to the Clinton Foundation would not even think to look at Charity Navigator, since their cause is purely self-interest. It’s like Al Capone not getting the Good Housekeeping seal of approval: no one is surprised or cares.
