Foundation’s History

After leaving the White House in 2001, President Bill Clinton made the decision to dedicate his life as a private citizen to make a difference in the world. The following year President Clinton started the Clinton Health Access Initiative at the urging of South African President Nelson Mandela. During this time he also started working with small local businesses in Harlem, New York. The foundation expanded its reach over the following years to include many initiatives and in 2013 was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
