The foundation set up to honor John Travolta’s late son donated 10 percent of its funds to Scientology last year, RadarOnline.com can report.

The 16-year-old died after hitting his head during a seizure in the Bahamas in 2009.  His parents John Travolta and Kelly Preston set up a foundation in his name — the Jett Travolta Foundation – and has been donating to worthy causes ever since.

The non-profit has given away approximately $56,000 since it was set up, Showbiz411 reports.

Tax filings for 2010 reveal the breakdown of the charity’s donations.

There were 14 donations totaling $27,850.  Included were: $2,500 to a Scientology detox charity in Ocala, Florida, $5,000 to both the Starlight Children’s Foundation and No Limits Limbs Loss Foundation and $2,500 to the Marion County (Fla.) Sheriff.

For years Travolta and Preston denied their son was autistic – a disease which is not recognized by Scientology – and said he was a victim of Kawasaki disease.

But shortly after his death, as RadarOnline.com reported, John testified in a Bahamian courtroom that his son had suffered from autism.

No donations have been made to charities combating either of those diseases.
