A copy of Barack and Michelle Obama’s tax returns released Friday shows that the first couple gave only .3 percent of their income to their church in 2013.

The Obamas made a total of $59,251 in charitable contributions in 2013 — 12.3 percent of their income — but most of the donations went to primarily secular organizations.

From their adjusted gross income of $481,098, the president and first lady gave $1,500 to St. John’s Church, an Episcopalian parish near the White House where they occasionally attend services.

The rest of their giving went to 31 different charities, including the American Red Cross ($4,000), National Aids Fund ($1,500), National Congress of Black Women ($1,500) and the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit ($1,000).
