Half of Bill and Hillary Clintons charitable giving last year went to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, according to a review of the latest financial disclosures from their private foundation.
The Clintons earned more than $28 million in 2014 and claimed around $3 million in income as charitable tax deductions, according to tax returns released by Hillary Clintons campaign last Friday. The campaign emphasized Clintons charitable giving in a press statement, saying that it represented 10.8 percent of her income in 2014. But roughly half of that money$1.8 millionappears to have been channeled to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
According to the tax returns, the Clintons gave $3 million in 2014 to the Clinton Family Foundation, a small private foundation that the family uses as a pass-through to other charities. Records show the CFF disbursed $3.7 million in 2014, including $1.8 million to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
That contribution was the familys largest by a significant margin that year. They made numerous smaller donations to other groups, including the University of Arkansas, the American Ireland Fund, and the American Friends of the Peres Center.

Like the old saying goes, “Pay yourself first.”
“...and the money kept rollin’ in....”
John Gotti missed out on the best RICO scam ever the Federal Government..you have IRS to collect your money and be enforcer
The Clintons’ “Human Fund” is the biggest money laundering scheme in the history of the world. And, to date, not only have they gotten away with it but thousands of countries, corporations and mega-rich have enthusiastically pitched in.
would make a great book. I don’t think God views their giving as tithing or gifts of thanksgiving.
Charity begins at home.
generous to a fault, I tell ya
Give money to yourself and write it off as a tax deduction. What a plan.
That’s reducing taxes without actually giving away the money.
“Half of Bill and Hillary Clintons charitable giving last year went to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation,”
Bwahh. Somethings never change.
‘Congressman or Senator Madoff’ wouldn’t be in jail like private citizen bernie madoff is..
Where is Rudy G? And why isn’t he bringing shillary down?
He brought down the 5 mob families...and probably had a quite hand in bringing down gotti....
Ok...this is where REAL REFORM needs to take place...LIBS paying their own or friend foundations should be illegal...same with GOP... $$$ should go to actual services...ie...Gates and whats his name trading foundation money s/b illegal
You have hit on a great point to make. While the money laundering into the Clinton syndicate’s pockets is important in their criminal enterprise, it’s just as important to focus on where that money comes from to begin with. Foreign countries, corporations and the mega-rich. I’ve never, ever seen an appeal to contribute to the Clinton crime syndicate in a magazine, on television or over any form of social media. They are not getting the money from grandma who sends them $10 to feed starving orphans in Uganda.
The top half of the hopper is bribery money. Then it goes into the grinder where the Clintons turn it into sausage. Very lucrative sausage.
