Idol Gives Back

On April 21, 2010 American Idol held a two-hour fundraising event which raised close to $45 million dollars. The money raised will be shared between the Children's Health Fund, Feeding America, Malaria No More, the U.S. Programs of Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation.
The Idol Gives Back Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established by the producers of American Idol and FOX in 2008 to raise money and awareness to serve children and their families in need throughout the U.S. and the rest of the world. We do not rate this organization as of yet. Idol Gives Back Foundation does not meet all of our requirements for inclusion on our website. We require 4 years of Forms 990 to complete an evaluation. Up to this point, the Foundation has only filed one Form 990. Please check back at a later date for an evaluation.

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 >>
