George Clooney Charity Work, Events and Causes

Charity biography

George Clooney seems to have one of the most charitable hearts in Hollywood, and, alongside his current mission to stop the human rights atrocities in the Darfur region of Sudan, he focuses much of his energy on helping those suffering from poverty.

Clooney famously founded Not On Our Watch with his Ocean’s 11 co-stars Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt, and producer Jerry Weintraub. The organization’s main goal is to stop the genocide occurring in Sudan. Clooney has visited the area personally, and spoken with victims of rape and torture. His charity has donated millions of dollars to help those suffering in the region, with much of the funding going through the United Nations World Food Programme.

The Ocean’s 13 leading man offered his company at the movie’s première and private after-party for an auction supporting Realizing the Dream. This non-profit seeks to continue the legacy and work of Dr. and Mrs. King in wiping out poverty and injustice.

Clooney has been known to give generous donations to homeless people, is a supporter of Bono’s poverty-fighting ONE Campaign, and is also on the Board of Trustees for the United Way.

George donated $25,000 to writers during the 2007 strike.

Clooney took part in the America: A Tribute to Heroes charity telethon for victims of 9/11.

Clooney visited the Nuba Mountains with ENOUGH Project to document atrocities of the Sudanese government on its own people, and testified about it before the US Senate Committee, days before getting arrested at the Sudanese embassy in DC in a peaceful protest.

George Clooney has supported the following charities:

21st Century Leaders
American Foundation for AIDS Research
Ante Up For Africa
Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes
CARE
Casey Lee Ball Foundation
Cinema For Peace
Clothes Off Our Back
ENOUGH Project
Feeding America
International Rescue Committee
Make Poverty History
Not On Our Watch
ONE Campaign
Oxfam
Partners in Health
Realizing the Dream
Red Cross
Rock For Darfur
Satellite Sentinel Project
Save the Children
UNICEF
United Way
Whatever It Takes
World Food Programme

They've missed out on two of his European charities: Ein Herz Fuer Kinder in Berlin and the one in Rome that I can't remember where he donated motorbikes to the emergency medical services so they could get through traffic faster.

Satellite Sentinel should have its own paragraph mention, I think given that it's a huge global idea intended to prevent warlords from killing their own people, and bringing together some amazing brains from the likes of Harvard, Google., Digital Globe. Idea conceived and funded by one George Clooney........

That is an abundance of donations. At least he isn't hoarding his money. Good for him....

THIS is the George I love and respect. I want him to be happy but due to some of his choices lately, this George gets lost and people have a tendency to lose respect for him. THIS is the George I would like to see return to the forefront.

I don't believe "this George" gets lost at all....all the information about his admirable humanitarian work is there for the studying.
Just because he doesn't blow his own trumpet about it, all the time,doesn't mean it's not happening continually in his private life.

That's a nice pic, looking alike Very Happy

Good question for the people who are asking why don't you donate/support this and that instead of what you do is to ask: What have YOU done, where your money, time and thoughts are going? Blah blah blah
