Millions of dollars in charitable contributions from Vice President Cheney and his wife, Lynne, will nearly double the budget of a scholarship fund for low-income area teenagers to attend private schools and will help George Washington University create a center to study heart disease.
The Cheneys' 2005 federal tax return, released by the White House late last week, shows that they made a $2.7 million donation to the Cardiothoracic Institute of George Washington University Medical Center, where the vice president has been treated for heart ailments."
