Charities Of Oprah Winfrey  

Oprah Winfrey is not only a celebrity talk show host but also a great philanthropist. In fact, she tops the list of celebrities where charity is concerned. She donates millions to her charities which she does through three foundations which are detailed below.

Here are the charitis of Oprah Winfrey:

  1. The Angel Network which she publicized in her shows started from small beginnings in 1997. Its goal was to persuade audiences to give and volunteer and become more involved in charitable works. Hundred percent of any donation goes directly in funding a project. Winfrey meets the overhead and operating costs herself. She motivates volunteers to collect money to provide scholarships for the Boys and Girls Club of the US. The Angel Network, after collecting donations, gives grants to organizations that do one of the following:
    • Provide education to whom it is not available.
    • Develops leaders to lead their communities.
    • Create communities of support
    • Support and protect basic human rights.
  2. The Oprah Winfrey Foundation is run exclusively by Winfrey and funded completely by her. It provides grants for non-profit organizations. The grants help her to fund her interests in education, learning and developing leadership. Oprah chooses her beneficiaries so there is no application. She also does not accept donations to this foundation which is exclusively funded by her. The foundation has more than $190 million in assets and funds.
  3. Oprah Winfrey Operating Foundation is also sometimes known as the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. This is set up to specifically give funds towards operating the Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. Winfrey began this school in January 2007. Donations can be made through a website. The funds are used for special projects or building repairs and improvements.
