he non-profit Jim Bunning Foundation, which collects the money the former pitcher gets from autographing baseball memorabilia, has taken in more than $504,000, Senate and tax records show.I know the non-profit and charitable world from the periphery. I cannot imagine the balls it takes to pay yourself the biggest chunk of your foundation's pie.
Of that, Bunning has earned $180,000 in salary for working a reported hour a week.
By contrast, the foundation has given $136,435, or about one-fourth of its income, to churches and charitable groups around Northern Kentucky. The largest sums went to local Catholic churches Bunning has attended.
