Answers to Questions About Clinton’s and Trump’s Giving

With Clinton Foundation controversies dominating election coverage this week, The Washington Post offers a primer on what’s known about both major-party presidential candidates’ philanthropic activities.

The article asks and answers seven questions about Hillary Clinton’s and Donald Trump’s personal and organizational charitable efforts, including donations totaling $110,000 in 2009 and 2010 by the Donald J.

The Post also summarizes documented personal giving by the candidates — a matter that, in the case of Mr. Trump, the newspaper has been investigating for months — and attempts to explain what donors to the Clinton and Trump foundations “get in return.”
