Madonna – 2nd Most Charitable Star of 2009

#2, Madonna

Charity: Raising Malawi
Annual Impact: $5,540,068

After co-founding Raising Malawi in 2006 to aid the nation’s two million orphans, Madonna has become one of the most hands-on philanthropic celebrities. She had to go through a fair bit of legal wrangling, but the pop star eventually adopted two Malawian children, Mercy and David. Of course, the coverage and controversy sparked by the adoptions generated significant press, as she and the charity were mentioned in over 600 newspaper or magazine articles in the last 24 months. The organization focuses on providing basic needs for children including nutrition, education, health care, and clothing, and to kick-start donations Madonna has vowed to match every dollar donated to the organization out of her own pocket.

Breakdown: TV ($455,568), Print ($4,897,500), Internet ($187,000), Personal donations (undisclosed)
