Charity Queen: Oprah
She’s associated with 22 charities and 24 causes, according to Look To The Stars.
“She has donated millions of dollars to various charities and organizations, with most of her money going to three foundations: The Angel Network, The Oprah Winfrey Foundation, and The Oprah Winfrey Operating Foundation,” reports the site.
There’s also her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa and Rebuilding the Gulf Coast.
The Oprah Winfrey Foundation is run exclusively by Oprah Winfrey, which is funded by an endowment.
In addition to her various organizations, Oprah often volunteers with other charities. And she often encourages her fans to be charitable. She even built a short-lived TV show around the concept of philanthropy, “Oprah Winfrey’s Big Give.” The 2008 Harpo Productions reality show featured contestants traveling across the country with large sums of money and they had to try to help people in unique ways.
