Bush Library Foundation Will Not Disclose Donors

The foundation raising money for President Bush’s future presidential library at the Southern Methodist University campus in Dallas does not plan to disclose its donors’ identities, reports the Associated Press.

As of August, the George W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation had raised less than $3-million of the $300-million goal for the project, which will break ground in the fall of 2010, the news agency reports.

No law requires presidential library foundations to make donor names public, but Bill Clinton decided to do so after his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, was named secretary of state.
