While it is true that Kennedy donated his salary to charity, I'm wondering if the answer of $100,000 per year should be accepted. He got the salary and it was his to donate, which he did. In other words, he couldn't donate a salary he didn't receive.

I'll change the clue to read how much of his salary he kept, rather than how much he received.
