Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill disbursed almost 60 percent of their donations towards charity to their own non-profit Clinton Foundation, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

Last month, the Daily Caller reported that the Clintons transferred 96 percent of their charitable donations to the Clinton Family Foundation, which is a separate and larger entity than the Clinton Foundation.

Both the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Family Foundation are charitable entities used by the Clintons. The Clintons' charitable money is first transferred to the Clinton Family Foundation followed by checks allocated to different charities.

The Clintons contributed $2,630,500 to charities last year from the family foundation, according to a review of the Clinton Family Foundation's 2015 Form 990 accessed by the Free Beacon through the assistant of Clinton's tax lawyer.

Among other donations were $30,000 to Yale University, $50,000 to Georgetown University, $20,000 to the Wildlife Conservation Society, and $25,000 to Hippy USA, according to the report.

So far, the majority of the donations from the Clinton Family Foundation have landed up at the Clinton Foundation. The Clintons transferred $1.5 million of the $2.6 million donations, which is 57 percent, in 2015 from Clinton Family Foundation to Clinton Foundation.

According to recent tax returns, of the $1,042,000 to charity, 96 percent which equals $1 million, went to the Clinton Family Foundation.

In 2014, the Clintons showed $3.7 million towards charity with $1.8 million (48 percent) of the amount being siphoned into the Clinton Foundation.

Since 2007, the largest contribution every year from the Clinton Family Foundation has gone to the Clinton Foundation.

Between 2007 and 2015, the Clintons have dispensed a massive $16,001,450 towards charity. However, of that total, $15,769,000 went to the Clinton Family Foundation, from which $5,812,000 was then channelled to other charities.
