Help Haitians Rebuild Lives and Livelihoods


The needs in Haiti are enormous. That's why we're making sure every dollar we spend stretches as far as it can toward stopping the cycle of aid dependency that makes natural disasters so catastrophic.

Clinton Bush Haiti Fund focuses on rebuilding lives and livelihoods. We are helping Haitians establish sustainable systems and institutions that provide health care, housing, water sanitation services, and other basic needs that mitigate the threats of natural disaster.

Together we can ensure that Haiti recovers from this tragedy stronger than before the earthquake.

Clinton Bush Haiti Fund


In the immediate aftermath of Haiti's January 12, 2010 earthquake, President Barack Obama asked former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to join forces and lead a major fundraising effort to assist the Haitian people. Together they established the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, a non-profit organization designed to help Haiti "build back better."

The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is dedicated to empowering Haiti to chart its own successful future. We do this by making catalytic grants and investments for long-term reconstruction and economic expansion. We work to support the Haitian people's efforts to rebuild their own country. Thus, any success realized by the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is not ours, but theirs.

By supporting and partnering with existing nonprofit and for-profit entities, we seek to foster a diversified and competitive Haitian economy, leveraging the nation’s entrepreneurial spirit in inclusive and environmentally conscious ways, enabling people, communities and businesses to thrive and prosper. In all that we do, we work with the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission to ensure consistency with the Haitian Development Plan.
