    Alex Rodriguez’s charity gave only 1 percent of donations to charitable causes
    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-b...-only-1-percent-donations-163106184--mlb.html

    Alex Rodriguez' woes continue. A new Boston Globe review of IRS filings by more than 50 athletes found that the charity established by Rodriguez, as well as those by other notable players, gave far less than the expected percentage of their income to actual charitable causes.

    Nonprofits are generally expected to donate 65 to 75 percent of their revenues to charitable causes, with the remainder going to pay whatever expenses and, if necessary, salaries of nonprofit employees. But according to the Globe, nearly half of the 50 athletes' foundations reviewed fell below that line.

    Rodriguez was not the only athlete whose foundation failed to meet acceptable giving rules, but his was certainly one of the most notorious misses. In 2006, Rodriguez teamed with Jay-Z for a charity poker tournament that helped the A-Rod Family Foundation raise $403,862. (Final reported records often differ from the "big check" as posted above because of facility use and similar expenses.)

    However, the IRS reported that barely 1 percent of that total reached charities: $5,000 to Jay-Z's Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund and $90 — yes, ninety dollars — to a Little League baseball team in Miami
    . The organization then stopped submitting financial reports to the IRS, and was subsequently stripped of its tax-exempt status.

    I'm just glad Douche-Rod is having a horrible ending to his career. Didn't last long enough to break any major records and his best years are tainted by PEDs, he'll be remembered in the same class as Bonds, McGuire and Sosa.

    Would be interesting to see how many friends and family memebers he has 'working' for his foundation.

    That's nothing, the Beth Stern Photographic Arts Foundation just made a grant to replace a snow damaged bikini.

    I heard about this on the radio today. Thought it was hilarious that a Boston newspaper dug up this dirt on a Yankee player.

    Wonder how long it will take this knob to realize his 'stylist' is playing a series of practical jokes on him.
