Q&A on the News

Q: During the recent conventions, a newscaster stated that Chelsea Clinton worked for the Clinton Foundation. What does she do for the foundation? How much does she make?

—Skip French, Sautee

A: Clinton is the vice chairman of the board for the Clinton Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that builds "partnerships between businesses, (non-governmental organizations), governments and individuals" to solve social issues.

She “works to drive the vision and programmatic work” of the Clinton Foundation, according to its website (clintonfoundation.org), and assists the foundation’s leadership to help make the Clinton Foundation “one of the most effective and efficient global NGOs in the world.”

She doesn’t receive a salary from the Clinton Foundation, the website states. The foundation’s 2014 tax forms show her receiving no salary for that year.
