With the Clinton Global Initiative winding up its annual meeting in New York, both major presidential candidates addressing the group, and renewed buzz about Hillary Rodham’s Clinton’s intentions in 2016, it’s a good time to revisit the foundation’s funding.

The Clinton Foundation reported raising nearly $870 million from 2006 through 2011.

Foreign billionaires, companies and foundations contribute, according to the disclosures made since Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009. So do foreign governments.

The map above shows governments that gave in 2011 and/or in prior years. Donations are reported in ranges, rather precise dollar figures.

Bill Clinton also collects speaking fees for appearances abroad. In her financial disclosure statement for 2011, Hillary Clinton listed six-figure honoraria for his appearances in China, Saudia Arabia, Switzerland, Nigeria, Brazil, the Grand Caymans, Austria, Holland, Panama, Canada and the United Arab Emirates.

Hillary Clinton, the most well-traveled secretary in State history, has visited 110 countries during her tenure. Here’s a list of countries contributing to the Clinton Foundation, and dates of her most recent reported visits:

Australia (Australian Government Overseas Aid) $10 million to $25 million November 2010
Dominican Republic (COPRESIDA-Secretariado Tecnico) $10 million to $25 million October 2011
