NEW YORK, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Unlike other foundations of the rich and famous, New York billionaire Donald Trump has kept his kept his foundation's charity in the low six figures.

The Web site TheSmokingGun.com Thursday reported Donald J. Trump Foundation's most recent tax return, filed with the IRS about two months ago, shows its charitable contributions at $287,000 in 2002, down from 2001's $306,000.

Even the 2001 terrorist attacks couldn't get the attention of the New York native's foundation, which reported no donations to Sept. 11-related charities.

Fellow titan David Geffen, a Brooklyn native who lives in Malibu, gave $1 million to be split among the American Red Cross, police and fire widows, and children's funds. Leona Helmsley, the so-called Queen of Mean, donated $5 million for the benefit of those same NYPD and FDNY widows.

Trump, though, has donated smaller amounts to charities run by fellow celebrities such as Russell Simmons, Chris Evert, Michael J. Fox, Derek Jeter, Walt Frazier and Larry King.
