If your Christmas tree is bare this year, have no fear, because the Clinton Foundation is offering a solution you’d be crazy to pass up.

For just a $5,000 contribution, donors to the Clinton family’s charity will receive a Clinton Foundation holiday ornament, the organization’s website notes.

The gift will also win donors the title of Clinton Foundation “Advocate,” as well as a spot on the organization’s website next to the other 1,286 people who have forked over a healthy monthly salary to join the Clinton club.

“Advocates” are one of six categories of donors listed on the Clinton Foundation website. For $1,000, “Investors” — the lowest level of donor — receive “exclusive Clinton Foundation news and updates” and invitations to program briefings with senior Clinton Foundation leadership.

Besides Christmas tree ornaments, “Advocates” receive everything that “Investors” get, plus invitations to exhibit grand openings at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Ark.


“Champions” receive the ornament, the exclusive news and updates, and the special invites to Clinton’s library, but they also get a “special edition copy” of remarks by President Clinton. They receive access to other more exclusive Clinton pow-wows.

It is at the $50,000 and $100,000 donor levels — for “Innovators” and “Visionaries,” respectively — that the goodies really start to flow.

That’s where opportunities arise to join Foundation staff on international program visits and service trips. And perhaps most exhilarating is the opportunity to join President Clinton himself at the Foundation’s annual retreat.
