Madonna Was So Happy Daughter Lourdes Went to College, She Donated $50,000 to the School, SUNY Purchase


Madonna’s kids are growing up and going to school, some have graduated or least made their way through a curriculum.

The Material Mom must have been happy that daughter Lourdes, aka Lola, went to the State University of New York at Purchase. She donated $50,000 to the Purchase Foundation in 2018.

Lola attended the school between 2016-19 and was in the dance program. Recently she signed with Creative Artists Agency.

The SUNY Purchase donation turned up in Madonna’s 2018 tax filing for her Ray of Light Foundation. In addition the school donation, Madonna also gave the Lycee Francaise on Manhattan’s Upper East Side a little bonus of $10,000. She’s been doing that for years, and sending her kids there. I’m sure they say, Merci beaucoup.

Madonna’s still heavily involved in the shady Kabbalah Center. She donated  $160,000 to them. Madonna’s given Kabbalah millions and millions over the years despite the group’s scandals and financial investigations.

All together, the very generous singer donated $725,000 to various charities including $5,000 to her friend, Rosie O’Donnell’s Broadway Kids (she should give more there, frankly), plus $200,000 to a group called Creating Hope International in Dearborn, Michigan. They describe themselves as assisting local organizations that work at the grass roots level in Afghanistan and India. ​
