Do you want to spend a “night out” with Hillary Clinton?
That fantasy has the chance of morphing into reality, if you can put up the right amount of cash. Yes, the Clinton family is in fundraising mode again — though, this time around, not for a political campaign.
Instead, the Clintons are reportedly seeking to raise over $200 million dollars to establish an endowment for the Clinton Foundation to ensure the organization survives after the death of Bill Clinton.
“You cannot continue to rely upon a single individual to raise all the money you need to raise on a yearly basis,” Bruce R. Lindsey, chairman of the foundation, reportedly speaking on behalf of the Clintons, told the Washington Post. ”First of all, it is unbelievably grueling on President Clinton, and second of all, if anything were to happen to him it would end.”
For large, unspecified sums of cash, the Washington Post says donors can purchase some unique time with the Clintons.
Wealthy supporters can expect to be invited to a musical weekend in London, a “night out” in San Francisco with Hillary and Chelsea, or even a private, one-on-one meeting with the former president.
The Washington Post doesn’t specify an exact figure for any of the events, but notes a one-on-one meeting will present donors with “the opportunity to write a check for $5 million to $10 million.”
The Washington Post adds that the invitations are being “delivered by phone and e-mail” and “resemble those of past political campaigns, complete with tiered levels and special access that depends on the size of the contribution.”
