The Reason It’s Really Nice To Have Will Smith As A Friend
The donation came via the Smiths charitable foundation and went to Theron’s The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, a not-for-profit charitable group that helps keep African youth safe from HIV/AIDS.
The Smiths also paid out a further six thousand dollars to the foundation run by Cesar Millan, the television star better known as “the Dog Whisperer,” which provides financial support to assist animal shelters.

Their single biggest contribution — a $200,000 check — went to the Baltimore School for the Arts foundation.
Smith, 44, and his 41-year-old wife donated $900,000 from their own trust to their tax-free foundation in 2010, the filing reveals. The couple is said to be worth more than $200 million.
Not on the list, however, was The New Village Leadership Academy, a controversial private school in Calabasas, Calif. that the Smiths founded. It has a curriculum devised by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, it’s been claimed.
Previously, the Smith’s charitable foundation provided lump sum payments to the school and gave more than $150,000 to groups affiliated with the controversial Church of Scientology.
Instead, this time around, the couple donated $35,800 to Oaks Christian School in West Lake Village, Calif. — a private non-denominational Christian college-preparatory school located on 18 acres in Westlake Village, Calif.
