Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continue to put their money where they say it will go. Their Jolie-Pitt Foundation donated just under $1million in 2012 to eradicate tuberculosis in Ethiopia. The foundation made three separate donations of $500k, $300K, and $166K to centers named for their children in that country.
That’s not all: Jolie-Pitt made a total of $1.7 million in donations for 2012. The other beneficiaries included $200,000 to Drury University Hospital in Missouri for their pediatric cancer center named for Jane Pitt, Brad’s mother; and $100,000 for Sean Penn’s Haiti relief fund. They also gave over $100.000 to organizations in Sarajevo.
The couple weren’t the only ones to donate money to their foundation in 2012. Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop donated $100,000 to Jolie-Pitt. International jeweler Asprey gave $25,725. Pitt’s private Chivan company kicked in $150,000.
Jolie-Pitt Foundation– which ended 2012 with $2.3 million in total assets- is as straightforward as you can get for a celebrity foundation. Madonna could take a lesson from them.
