Christie, after touring a site that provides services for the developmentally disabled, praised his wife's performance at the charity.

"I'm really proud of the job she's done and the professionalism she's brought to the job," he said Monday. "The fact that they're being careful with people's money is something that's laudable."

Christie's wife, Mary Pat Christie, a hedge fund manager who took two months off from her job to oversee the charity, told the newspaper she is being methodical to ensure the money is spent properly.

The fund's honorary advisory board includes Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and former Sen. Bill Bradley.
