The National Father's Day Council, which has been giving out such an honor for 72 years, has named Clinton one of its recipients for 2013, according to USA Today.
Clinton's work through the William J. Clinton Foundation "to improve global health, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment" and for bringing "global leaders together to work on the most pressing issues," were commended by the committee.
The not-for-profit group awards Father of the Year to "contemporary lifestyle leaders of our culture" and raises money for its philanthropic efforts. Past political figure recipients have included Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Cuomo and his father, Mario Cuomo, and Rudy Giuliani.
The awards will be given out in June.
