NEW YORK – The Clinton Foundation said it will only accept donations from governments of Australia, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom, taking out Mid-eastern governments.

The foundation has been criticized for its reliance on governments that suppress women equality concerns and the issue could be raised against board member Hillary Clinton, who is undertaking her presidential campaign, reported

The Clinton Foundation said that going forward it will continue to look abroad for millions of dollars but will limit donor nations to a select group of 6, which are long-time allies of the United States.

The foundation also decided to start disclosing its donors every quarter instead of the current annual system.

Among the notable foreign donors of the foundation are the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the State of Kuwait, the State of Qatar, the Sultanate of Oman, the Government of Brunei Darussalam, and the Al Nahyan Family of the United Arab Emirates,

The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, originally the William J. Clinton Foundation, is a non-profit foundation established by former President of the United States Bill Clinton with the stated 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 and Little Rock, Arkansas.

Hillary, the former First Lady, United States Senator, 2008 presidential candidate, and Secretary of State, declared her candidacy in the 2016 presidential election on April 12, 2015.

Hillary is widely seen as the front runner for the Democratic nomination for president. –
