“Though Romney hasn’t released his personal tax returns, he has given away millions through the Tyler Charitable Foundation, whose records are publicly available.
“From 2000 to 2009, Romney and his wife gave $6.4 million through the foundation, with $4.6 million of that then going to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where Romney is a member. The second-highest recipient of the Romneys’ gifts is the Mormon-affiliated Brigham Young University, where all five of their sons attended, underscoring the family’s commitment to their Mormon religion.”
(Sidenote Contrast – “Since 2000, [Rick] Perry and his wife Anita have donated to churches $12,668–or 0.47 percent of their income–according to their personal tax returns. They have not donated personal income to any other Christian nonprofits. . . . In 2007, when he reported income of over $1 million, he gave $90 to his church.”)
