Romney and his wife Ann maintain a separate charitable foundation. The couple has contributed approximately $13.6 million including an initial gift of more than $3.6 million to their Tyler Charitable Foundation, based in Boston, MA, over the past 13 years.
Among them the dollars awarded by the Tyler Foundation since 2000:
The United Way:$177,000
Operation Kids:$85,000
Center For Treatment of Pediatric MS:$75,000
City Year:$65,000
Deseret International:$50,000
All told, nearly $18 million of charitable giving by Mitt Romney to date is roughly 8% of what we currently estimate his net worth to be and three times Obama’s net worth.
Yet it is very likely that we are undercounting Romney’s total lifetime giving by many millions, as any exhaustive log of Romney’s pre-2010 out of pocket donations.

You altered the list Carol,

#1 Was The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints $4.761,000

#2 Was Brigham Young University $525,000

#3 Was The United Way

Additionally, Deseret International is a commercial arm of the Mormon Church.

So what is it with you? You, like fred must think that legions of Americans tune into this thread daily for the latest political news, because in all this time not a single regular contributor here has bought into yours or fred's insanity.

That freak is a sociopath__is that your deal too? The truth doesn't support you ideology so you resort to lies?

Everyone notices Carol__even the sockpuppets that you think are real people who adore you.

Sadder than sad.

This point about bipartisanship was brought to the forefront at the VP Debate. Everyone saw clearly who was problem. An arrogant admin who refuses to hear any ideas different from their own.

TRANSLATION:

Let Romney take away citizens affordable coverage.

The ER needs to be remain like now: uncrowded.

LOL

ER has been a dump in every city in the USA for decades! Crowded! Very crowded!

Mitt Romney says citizens should get all care there! In the ER.

HE SAID THAT YESTERDAY!

carol is clueless again!

Mitt Romney thinks no one dies because they cant get med insurance!

Really?

Ever heard of cancer Mitt? The ER does not treat that!

Ever heard of hundreds of diseases the ER does not treat? Mitt?

You shouldn't be worried about my Medicare. You should be worried about yours. It ain't gonna be there anymore if Obama gets his way. At least 30 million more people are going to be waiting ahead of you in ERs and clinics and that's not even including the thousands who are going to be dropped from their employers' plans behind you.
The health care system is going to collapse, doctors are going to refuse to take Medicare patients (they doing that now in alarming numbers) and somebody is going to have to pay for all of this when more and more industries pack up and leave.

Yo Dipso, I see she prefaced the list with the words "among those" ... didn't that fit your agenda? Go count housing units in your trailer park or whatever the hell you do for fun. So what if Romney supports his church - do you support yours? Do you have one? It's his money - he earned it. Jealous?
