The Donald likes to make money but not be charitable with his income.

For the sixth straight year, Donald Trump made no contributions to his own charitable foundation, instead relying on a hefty contribution from a New York City ticket scalper to underwrite the group’s activities, according to an Internal Revenue Service filing.

…the GOP presidential candidate has used other people’s money to fund his foundation’s minimal efforts.

The Trump Foundation’s latest tax return shows that the group received two contributions in 2014. Prestige Mills, a wholesale carpet firm headquartered in Queens, gave $20,000. The second donation, for $477,400, is credited to “Richard Ebers, Inside Sports and Entertainment Group.”

…Since Trump has shown a deep aversion to funding his own foundation, the Ebers donations–as well as those received in prior years from the World Wrestling Federation ($5 million), NBC Universal ($500,000), and Comedy Central ($400,000)–allow the business magnate to maintain an illusion of philanthropy without actually having to reach into his own pocket.
