What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Alliance for a Healthier Generation

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation (AHG) is an independent and associated initiative that works to promote healthy environments so young people can achieve lifelong good health. Founded in 2005 as a partnership between the Clinton Foundation and American Heart Association, Healthier Generation works with U.S. schools, youth-serving organizations, and families to build healthier communities that support children’s physical, social, and emotional health. Since it was founded, Healthier Generation has positively impacted the lives of 30 million children across the United States.

Population(s) Served

The Clinton Development Initiative (CDI) has worked with smallholder farmers and families in Africa since 2005 to meet their own food needs and improve their livelihoods. Working at the invitation of the governments of Malawi, Rwanda, and Tanzania, we partner with farming communities to transform subsistence agriculture into a catalyst for social and economic change. Our community agribusiness approach (CAB) supports the creation and development of community farming businesses. Since inception, CDI has supported 160,000 farmers with improved access to markets and economic opportunities.

Population(s) Served

The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) brings together established and emerging global leaders to create and implement solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. CGI works with partners to develop Commitments to Action — new, specific, and measurable actions in climate resilience, health equity, and inclusive economic recovery and growth. President Bill Clinton launched CGI in 2005 to turn ideas into action⁠ — creating a new space where leaders across sectors could commit publicly to form unlikely partnerships and take action together. Since then, partners in the CGI community have made more than 3,900 Commitments to Action that have made an impact on the lives of over 435 million people in more than 180 countries. At the 2022 September meeting, there were over 140 Commitments to Action made. When fully funded and implemented, these Commitments will, among other things: create more than 1.6 million full-time, permanent jobs; help more than 12.8 million people access primary care

Population(s) Served

The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Overdose Response Network (ORN) works to address the U.S. overdose crisis with a comprehensive, sustainable approach. We bring together diverse groups of stakeholders to implement solutions aimed at reversing the crisis and increasing access to naloxone and other lifesaving resources by expanding our work with schools, faith leaders, and communities. Over 665,000 doses of naloxone have been distributed to recovery residences, high schools, universities, and community organizations through the Overdose Response Network.

Population(s) Served

The Clinton Presidential Center (CPC) presents a unique perspective of the work – past, present, and future – of President Bill Clinton. From interactive exhibitions to engaging programs, we offer a variety of year-round, educational, and cultural opportunities for visitors of all ages. And we are continuing President Clinton’s commitment to advancing opportunity for everyone, instilling responsibility throughout our society, and cultivating a shared sense of community. Since inception, the CPC has helped 479,000 students and educators connect the lessons of the Clinton administration to the challenges of today through its free educational and cultural programming.

Population(s) Served

Too Small to Fail (TSTF), the early childhood initiative of the Clinton Foundation, surrounds families with early language and learning opportunities and supports parents and caregivers with resources to talk, read, and sing with young children from birth to help prepare them for success in kindergarten and beyond. We envision a world where all families have access to high-quality early learning resources, every community is filled with spaces for young children to thrive, and all parents and caregivers engage in language-rich interactions with their children . Too Small to Fail has provided over 1.4 million free children’s books, toolkits, and early literacy resources to communities across the US.

Population(s) Served

Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) is a dynamic community of students committed to developing innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. CGI U is a unique opportunity to connect aspiring leaders with leading experts in business, technology, and social impact. Each year, thousands of undergraduate and graduate students from across the country and around the world apply to participate in CGI U’s year-round community of learning, leadership, and action — beginning with a global meeting where participants, topic experts, and high-profile innovators convene to support and learn from each other . Over 11,000 university students from more than 160 countries and 137 institutions of higher education are turning their ideas into action through CGI U.

Population(s) Served

The Presidential Leadership Scholars program is a one-of-a-kind partnership between the presidential centers of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson. The program brings together bold and principled leaders who are committed to facing critical challenges in their communities, country, and world. Participants gain the skills necessary to work across divides and develop a network that spans traditional geographic, professional, political, and economic boundaries. The Presidential Leadership Scholars program aims to challenge pre-existing perceptions and inspire lasting, positive change. More than 400 distinguished leaders are applying lessons learned from the presidencies of Lyndon B. Johnson, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush to make a difference in their communities through the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are applying the lessons of President Clinton’s lifetime of public service to the challenges of today. “Putting People First” was more than a unifying platform for President Clinton’s 1992 campaign. It remains the guiding principle in our work. We believe that everyone deserves a chance to succeed, everyone has a responsibility to act, we all do better when we work together — and that our common humanity matters more than our interesting differences. Before leaving office, President Clinton said, “I always kept score by a simple measure: Were ordinary people better off when I stopped than when I started?” We measure our work by the number of lives improved. In line with President Clinton’s belief that diverse groups make better decisions than homogenous ones, we bring together a diverse community of partners — with different sets of skills, experiences, resources, and perspectives — to create a more inclusive and equitable world. Since we first opened in Harlem, NY, and broke ground in Little Rock, AR, we have formed partnerships that fill the gaps between what the public sector can provide and what the private sector can produce — always striving to solve problems faster, better, and at a lower cost.

To fulfill this mission, the Clinton Foundation works with strategic partners to develop and implement programs that create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service. As an operating foundation, we are “putting people first” through programs that are:

CREATING ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY
The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) brings together leaders from government, business, and civil society to address the world’s most pressing challenges – launching thousands of Commitments to Action that have improved the lives of more than 435 million people in 180 countries. CGI works to advance solutions that empower people and families, enable entrepreneurs and small businesses, provide access to capital, and support effective ecosystem development.
The Clinton Development Initiative helps farmers in Malawi, Rwanda, and Tanzania improve their livelihoods through agricultural training and better access to markets and resources.

IMPROVING PUBLIC HEALTH
Too Small to Fail promotes early brain and language development by supporting parents and caregivers in underserved communities with tools to talk, read, and sing with their babies from birth to set them up for success in school and in life.
The Foundation’s Overdose Response Network works to increase education and awareness on the opioid epidemic to reduce stigma and curb addiction while providing communities with the tools to fight the epidemic and save lives.
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation works with schools, youth-serving organizations, businesses, and communities to improve the places children learn, live, and play to provide and promote good health and better nutrition.
CGI works to advance solutions that mobilize action around public health ecosystems and support and engage community-led action in long-term systems change.

INSPIRING CIVIC ENGAGEMENT AND SERVICE
The Foundation operates the Clinton Presidential Center, marking President Clinton’s legacy and inspiring new generations of service. The Center provides year-round educational and cultural opportunities.
The Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) program engages the next generation of leaders, connecting students with global leaders and helping them build commitments to address urgent challenges in their communities and around the world.
The Presidential Leadership Scholars program is a partnership between the presidential centers of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson that brings together leaders committed to facing critical challenges in their communities, countries, and the world.

CLIMATE ACTION AND RESILIENCE
The Clinton Global Initiative mobilizes leaders from across the public and private sectors to launch specific, actionable programs around climate and resilience, including investment in climate adaptation and mitigation, more resilient communities, and renewable energy projects.

The Clinton Foundation has a strong network of partners that include businesses, governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), other civil society organizations, and individual leaders who lend their resources, expertise, and ingenuity to efforts that expand economic opportunity, improve public health, confront the climate crisis, and inspire citizen engagement and service.

Led by President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton, the Foundation has a unique convening power to bring together organizations and leaders who otherwise would not work together. We have used this convening power to forge impactful partnerships around the globe. The Foundation has a track record of success, as the impact metrics here demonstrate.

Finally, we have built a significant capacity to address emerging challenges and mobilize our networks to address both urgent short-term needs (such as our Action Network formed in response to the 2017 Caribbean hurricane season) and challenges that demand sustained, long-term solutions (such as our efforts to fight the overdose crisis in the United States).

The Clinton Foundation has diverse initiatives working to address some of the world's greatest challenges. Because of our work, the Clinton Foundation has supported the development of over 11,000 rising leaders through Presidential Leadership Scholars (PLS) and CGI U and supported 30,400,000 students through the work of AHG and the CPC providing educational opportunities and access to better nutrition. The Clinton Foundation's impact extends well beyond these above results:
• At the end of 2022, ORN had enrolled 21 states and distributed over 650,000 doses of Naloxone.
• Since President Clinton founded CGI U in 2007, more than 10,000 students from over 1,100 schools, over 160 countries, and all 50 states have participated. Their efforts have culminated in more than 7,000 Commitments to Action.
• Through the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), partners have made more than 3,900 Commitments to Action that have made an impact in the lives of over 435 million people in more than 180 countries.
• By the end of 2022, TSTF had distributed 1,378,273 children’s books to under-resourced families across the country.
• Since inception, more than 160,000 farmers in Malawi, Rwanda, and Tanzania have benefited from climate-smart agronomic training, higher crop yields, and increased market access through the Clinton Development Initiative (CDI).
• From 2004 to 2022, more than 5 million visitors from around the world have visited the Clinton Presidential Center (CPC).
• From inception through 2021, the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) supported the development and installation of 71 MW of clean energy projects in island nations. (In 2022, as part of the scaling up of the Foundation’s convening-based model through CGI, the Foundation transitioned CCI’s work on climate action and resilience to CGI.)
