Gwyneth Paltrow is consistently recognized as one of the world’s most charitable celebrities, as she commits her time and energy to various philanthropic projects and organizations around the world. Paltrow, who lost her father Bruce to cancer, is a spokesperson for Stand Up To Cancer, a non-profit organization that raises money for cancer research and is dedicated to curing cancer; she was even a co-executive producer for their 2012 SU2C telecast which received more than $81 million pledges.
Paltrow also serves on the board of the Robin Hood Foundation, an organization whose goal is to eliminate poverty-related problems in New York City. The Robin Hood Foundation also focuses on finding, funding, and creating programs and schools in New York City’s poorest neighborhoods.
Paltrow’s philanthropy is not limited to American founded organizations; she also works closely with an incredible London based organization named Kids Company. Founded in 1996 by Camila Batmanghelidjh, Kids Company provides emotional and educational support to at-risk inner city children across London. Paltrow also has donated her voice by narrating projects sponsored by UNICEF and GLSEN, and has generously donated to the Food Bank for New York City.
