Large charities require big bucks
The June 3 front-page article “Results and repercussions,” about the Clinton Foundation, demonstrated the best of international philanthropy, which can’t happen without the double-edged sword of massive funding. The Internal Revenue Code strictly limits a private, tax-exempt foundation’s activities, and there are no indications that any of those provisions have been violated.
It is unfortunate that the Clinton Foundation has come under a cloud, even though it has helped many individuals and countries in dire need. I hope it will continue its important work despite becoming a lightning rod for those wanting to attack Hillary Clinton and her campaign for president. I also hope the public will be savvy enough to recognize the good and dismiss the noise.
