Jon Huntsman Sr. doesn't consider his Mormon faith's tithing to be philanthropy; it's just "club dues," and so his giving tally doesn't even include it.
" Huntsman has given away $1.5 billion — or about 80 percent of his total wealth — to various causes and charities, according to Forbes. However, that total does not include his tithing of 10 percent of his income that he has given to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Tithing money typically goes to fund the costs of building LDS temples, churches and supporting missionaries, according to mormon.org. Huntsman said he doesn’t include his tithing as charitable giving." -- Faith Heaton Jolley, KSL (TV).com
