Building on a lifetime of public service, President Clinton established the Clinton Foundation on the simple belief that everyone deserves a chance to succeed, everyone has a responsibility to act, and we all do better when we work together. For nearly two decades, that premise has energized the work of the Foundation in overcoming complex challenges and improving the lives of people across the United States and around the world.
As an operating foundation, we work on issues directly or with strategic partners from the business, government, and nonprofit sectors to create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service. Our programs are designed to make a real difference today while serving as proven models for tomorrow. The goal of every effort is to use available resources to get better results faster – at the lowest possible cost.
We firmly believe that when diverse groups of people bring resources together in the spirit of true cooperation, transformative ideas will emerge to drive life-changing action.

The CGI Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery is a network of over 700 organizations committed to advancing response, recovery, and resiliency efforts across the Caribbean region. As hurricanes become more powerful and frequent, islands across the region must balance rebuilding efforts, preparation for future storms, and the longer-term investments needed to address the systemic challenges that make Caribbean islands and economies so vulnerable. The CGI Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery serves as a platform for this regional conversation, where organizations from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors can come together to identify areas of critical need and amplify their impact; coordinate work and avoid duplication; share lessons learned, best practices, and common resources; and network and build new partnerships.
The CGI Action Network approaches this work in two ways. First, the Action Network regularly convenes its members to meet and learn from one another, creating a community of like-minded organizations who can share knowledge, support, and resources with one another. Second, the Action Network works with members to identify new projects and broker partnerships that will advance response, recovery, and resiliency efforts across the region. These projects and partnerships are known as “Commitments to Action,” and form the core product of the Action Network. Since its launch in April of 2018, 87 Commitments to Action have been made through the Action Network, worth $153 million when fully funded and implemented.
The core function of the Manager is to drive the development of these projects (“Commitments to Action”) across multiple focus areas: health, agriculture, renewable energy, environmental stewardship, economic development, and education. Managers accomplish this by recruiting and maintaining a network of leaders in the field, offering relevant programming at Action Network meetings, and brokering connections between Action Network members. Throughout the project development process, Managers support members by identifying potential partners and resources, advising on gaps and opportunities in the project concept, and bringing visibility to the project. Once the Commitment to Action is underway, Managers work with members to obtain annual progress reports. CGI does not fund, manage, or implement Commitments to Action.
(A Commitment to Action is a project, developed and executed by Action Network members, that addresses a significant challenge in hurricane response and resiliency, such as increasing access to renewable energy, expanding health care services, or pre-positioning relief supplies. A commitment is a detailed project plan that includes clear and measurable objectives, a timeline and budget, and outlines the key steps required to achieve success. Commitments can be small or large, financial or non-monetary, and philanthropic or core business-related. Many commitments leverage new resources through cross-sector partnerships, with commitment-makers combining efforts to expand their impact.)
