by Tashi Singh

Who are the biggest celebrity philanthropists? Many celebrities give money to charity, but which celebrities give more than just "enough"?

After starting her own charity organization fund, there is one star who trumps all celebrities with her generous donations and general philanthropy. Her name? Oprah Winfrey, the former US talk show queen who found incredible fame from her talk show, 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'.

A list of the Top Ten Biggest Celebrity Philanthropists is below!

1. Oprah Winfrey has donated $58,300,000 to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy, Oprah's Angel Network and other groups
2. Geoffrey Beene has donated $44,000,000 to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
3. Jack and Marie Lord have donated $40,000,000 to the Hawaii Community Foundation
4. Barbra Streisand has donated over $22,000,000 to Barbra Streisand Foundation, numerous civil liberties, environmental and civil rights organizations "dedicated to democratic values"
5. Tiger Woods has donated $9,500,000 to the Tiger Woods Learning Center, Earl D Woods Sr. Scholarship Fund and other Tiger Woods Foundation programs
6. Rosie O'Donnell has donated $5,700,000 to the Katrina Relief efforts including Renaissance Village (a temporary shelter for Katrina victims), day care centers, a rehabilitation center in San Antonio and a Habitat for Humanity subdivision in Baton Rouge

How much have you donated in your life? Do you give to charity regularly? Even if you don't make millions of dollars, donating to charity is just as important for "normal" people to do as it is for celebrities. Consider donating a percentage of what you have today!
