Niche: Celebrities

MadonnaAccording to newly available tax filings for her 'Ray of Light Foundation', Madonna donated $3.1 million last year and the bulk of it went to the Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles.

Madonna demonstrated her genuine devotion to Kabbalah by donating  a total of $2,626,529 to the Kabbalah Center itself and an additional $4,025 to the group's offshoot, 'Spirituality for Kids'.

Madonna's other notable donations of include $250,000 to Mobilization Against AIDS; $15,000 to the TJ Martell Foundation for Leukemia and Cancer Research, $23,000 to a group that sets up playgrounds in Russia; some to the All Saints Church in Pasadena, Calif., and to the Los Angeles Jewish Big Brothers and Sisters but none to groups like the Red Cross, Save the Children, or even Doctors Without Borders.

Considering that Madonna made a documentary about Malawi and even threw a fundraiser for it last February with Gucci and UNICEF, it does seem more than a little strange that she didn't spread her wealth to a region that so needs it. The whereabouts of the $3.7 million that was raised for it are as yet unknown but the destination might become known when Form 990s are filed.
