More importantly, can presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton? She should be able to because it bears her name.

Yes, we are talking about the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, and a review of its latest IRS tax filings reveals that a 38% pay gap separates the guys — who earn more — from the gals.

On average, top male executives at the foundation earn $109,000 more than the top female executives with positions in the C-suite.

The foundation’s 2013 IRS form 990 shows furthermore that nearly three times as many men as women occupy the executive suites at the Little Rock, Arkansas-based foundation.

The numbers were in stark contrast to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign-oriented “Equal Pay Day” speech, which she delivered in Silicon Valley Tuesday. She charged that equal pay for women was “long overdue.”

“I feel like [equal pay] is something that’s long overdue,” she told an event organized by Glassdoor, which compares salaries and working conditions at corporations.

“It is way past time to end the outrage of so many women still earning less than men on the job,” she told the audience.

Pay equity at The Clinton Foundation, however, doesn’t quite meet those standards.

The foundation’s highest paid executive is Frederick Post, director of “sponsor and marketing,” who has built the foundation’s assets to $247 million. He received $484,000 in annual compensation.

The highest paid woman is CEO Virginia Ehrlich. Her pay is only $201,000, less than half that of Post’s.

The second-highest paid male is long-time Clinton associate Bruce Lindsay, who received $395,000 in annual compensation.

All eight male foundation execs earn $200,000 or more. Only one woman earned $200,000, while Stephanie Streett, its executive director, received a paltry $169,000.

Altogether, eight executives are men in the executive suites compared to three women, according to the foundation’s filing.

Clinton did not refer to her own foundation’s pay disparities at the event.

A Clinton Foundation spokesman has not responded to a DCNF request for comment.
