About this grant

This grant will provide support for the Clinton Global Initiative, a project of the William J. Clinton Foundation. The grantee is a public charity established in 1997 by the 42nd president of the United States. The mission of the organization is to strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence. In 2005, President Clinton established the Clinton Global Initiative to turn ideas into action and to help the world move beyond the current state of globalization to a more integrated global community of shared benefits, responsibilities, and values. By gathering world leaders from a variety of backgrounds, the initiative creates a unique opportunity to channel the capacities of individuals and organizations to realize change. The 2011 annual meeting will take place September 19-22 in New York City.
