About Bill Clinton
William Jefferson Clinton served as the 42nd President of the United States (1993-2001). At 46 he was the first babyboomer and third youngest president to ever serve our nation. Clinton has been described as the “new democrat” for his unique stance on democracy and everlasting efforts in politics.
Since 2001, he has been involved in public speaking and humanitarian work. Based on his philanthropic worldview, Clinton created the William J. Clinton Foundation to promote the mission to “strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.” The Foundation focuses on four critical areas: health security, economic empowerment, leadership development and citizen service, and racial, ethnic and religious reconciliation. The Foundation works principally through partnerships with like-minded individuals, organizations, corporations, and governments, often serving as an incubator for new policies and programs. They have offices located in New York City, Boston and Little Rock, Arkansas. In 2005, Clinton founded the Clinton Global Initiative to convene global leaders to devise innovative solutions for the world’s most pressing problems. Clinton has written a number of books about philanthropic giving and an autobiography. He continues to inspire many individuals through his commitment through action campaign and active involvement in politics.
