The PJStar has some Blagojevich tax scoop.
The federal tax return for Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his wife for 2004 shows that the couple had an adjusted gross income of $375,063 and gave $6,800 to charity. That's about 1.8 percent. In 2003, their adjusted gross income was $227,497, and they gave $2,385 to charity.

Better on the donations this year wonder if the observations about last years being about 1% had anything to do with that? According to some law professors at Yale the national average is about 2% so he is at least getting closer to average. According to Turbo Tax in 2002 the average charatble donation for someone with an income over 200K was 17K between 100 ~ 200K was $3,875.
