BUFFALO, NY-- We now know how much the University at Buffalo paid former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to speak at the college last year.
2 On Your Side obtained the contract through our partners at Investigative Post. They received it from a source.
The contract states Clinton be paid $275,000, which includes travel expenses, for the speech.
According to a report in the Washington Post, the fee did not sit well with students facing rising tuition costs.
UB would not disclose the amount Clinton was paid for her speech when requested earlier this month, saying in a statement: "Agreements with speakers are maintained by the University at Buffalo Foundation, a private non-profit organization. These agreements, including information about speaking fees, are not public information."
There are limited public documents regarding the UB Foundation. Those that exist however suggest that the UB Foundation has more than half a billion dollars in assets.
The UB Foundation is not required by law to disclose the amount paid for speaking engagements.
