Celebrity Donations

With the ever present media intruding on celebrities’ personal lives, we are more aware of their actions, and more often than not, stories about celebrities focus on the negative things going on in their lives. Therefore, we would like to point out some celebrities that are using their status and wealth to change things for the better. The Giving Back Fund has published a list of the 30 most generous celebrities of 2007, according to public records.

Several celebrities supported organizations rated by Charity Navigator. Among them are Oprah Winfrey (Oprah’s Angel Network), Paul Newman (Kenyon College), Lance Armstrong (Lance Armstrong Foundation), Jerry Seinfeld (American Red Cross), Hugh Hefner (University of Southern California) and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (University of Miami).

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
