The First Family's Charitable Donations
With April 15th just past us, it was recently reported that the President Obama and his wife Michelle donated $70,712 (14.8%) of their 2014 earnings to charity. Their largest gift was $22,012 to the Fisher House Foundation. Hopefully, the First Family consulted Charity Navigator before making the donation. If they did, they would have had the confidence of donating to one of our 4 Star rated charities. The Fisher House Foundation supports America's military. The rest of their donations were made to multiple charities in amounts from $1,500 to $5,000. Their third largest donation of $2,000 was given to another 4 star Charity Navigator rated charity The CDC Foundation.
