The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund was created by former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush in order to help Haiti recover from the devastating earthquake that struck the country in January 2010. Since then, the nonprofit has focused on creating job opportunities and economic stability in Haiti. The website says, “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.”

Now, the nonprofit has given $1.5 million. According to the Huffington Post, the donation comes in three grants meant to strengthen Haiti’s hotel and technology industries and education. A $264,000 grant was given to the Oasis Foundation in order to train individuals in hospitality to work in hotels. Another grant of $914,000 was given to Quisqueya University to educate and train business leaders. A grant of $285,000 will be given to EducaTech, a company that provides computers, equipment and training.

Several big name celebrities have also donated to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund since it was founded, including Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney.
