Bill Clinton to match gifts to family's foundation

WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton is seeking charitable donations with a one-week special offer. She says her husband and former president Bill Clinton will personally match any donation made to the Clinton Foundation through Dec. 31.

The former secretary of state and possible 2016 presidential candidate tells supporters in an e-mail that the Clintons have big plans for their non-profit foundation 2014. She specifically mentioned programs that help preschoolers, young job-seekers, and women and girls "in every aspect of our society."

Clinton has indicated she will decide in 2014 whether to run for president in 2016.

The group Cause Marketing International posted a copy of Clinton's fundraising e-mail Monday.
