The Obamas also reported donating $64,000 to charity, or about 15 percent of their income. Their largest charitable donation, $9,000, went to the Fisher House Foundation, which assists wounded military members and their families.
In addition to Fisher House Foundation, long the Obamas’ favored charity, the couple donated $5,000 to the Beau Biden Foundation, established in honor of Vice President Joe Biden’s son who died of brain cancer last year. They contributed $5,000 to Sidwell Friends School, which their daughters attend, while giving smaller amounts to nearly three dozen charities including AIDS United, Habitat for Humanity, United Negro College Fund and the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation.
