  • GIVING IS UP: Clinton Foundation reports jump in revenue.

The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation provided tax documents to the AP's Kelly Kissel that show the foundation's revenue almost tripled in 2013, from $51.5 million in 2012 to $144.4 million in 2012.

The article notes, as other reporting has done, that the Foundation is making a push to build an endowment to sustain the foundation over the long term. The push for contributions is important now because of the possibility that Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016. Such a candidacy would inevitably raise anew questions about political interests of major contributors.

Nine unidentified donors accounted for $64 million of the revenue.

The documents show the Foundation spent more than $100 million in health initiatives around the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. (Disclosure: My daughter Martha works for the Clinton Foundation on African and Asian health and agricultural projects.)

The Foundation also supports activities at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, which celebrated its 10th birthday last weekend with, among others, a dinner for major donors.

You can access foundation annual reports and financial reports here.

Here's the specific link to the tax document on which AP reported.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
