Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife donated $647,500 to charitable donations in 2010, the New York Times reported.
About $145,000 went to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Times said citing tax returns the Romney's filed on Nov. 15. The donations come from the couple's foundation that was set up in the 1990s, the Times said. Since 1999, the Romneys have donated $7.1 million to charitable causes, including at least $525,000 to Brigham Young University in Provo.
The Tyler Charitable Foundation, as it is known, is run by R. Bradford Malt, a Boston-based lawyer. Romney's assets range from $190 million to $250 million, the Times said, citing campaign aides.
