Hillary Clinton gave over a million dollars to charitable causes last year — and nearly 96% of it went to a non-profit with her name on the front door.
Clinton gave $1,042,000 in charitable contributions last year, and of that, $1 million went to the Clinton Family Foundation, CNBC reports.
The other $42,000 — or roughly 4% of the giving — went to Desert Classic Charities.
But even that group is connected with the Clinton Foundation.
The group wrote on its website in 2012:
Desert Classic Charities, the local non-profit entity that has organized the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation (formerly the Bob Hope Classic) for 53 years, today presented 40 Coachella Valley charities with more than $2 million in donations, the charitable proceeds raised from January’s Humana Challenge PGA TOUR golf tournament.
“Our new partnership with Humana and the Clinton Foundation has made it possible for us to continue making a huge difference in the lives of so many individuals here in the Coachella Valley,” John Foster, president and CEO of Desert Classic Charities, said on the charity website.
According to CNBC:
Hillary Clinton also listed $1.475 million in gross income from speaking, and Bill reported $5.25 million in gross income from speaking. No details were provided on those speaking engagements.
The Clintons made $10.7 million in total income, but reported an adjusted gross income of $10.6 million due to a self-employment tax deduction.
The news site notes the Clintons paid an effective federal tax rate of 34.2%.
