Will and Jada donated over $900,000 to charity last year.
Despite their busy schedules and larger-than-life living, Will and Jada Smith have still found time to give back to their community, so much so that they’ve earned a top spot on The Giving Back Fund’s “Giving Back 30” list.
The “Giving Back 30” list names the top 30 celebrities who made the largest donations to charity in 2010 according to public records. Forbes.com reports that Will and Jada took the number 20 spot due to their committed efforts with the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, a charity that focuses on education and inner-city family welfare. The Smiths also donated a combined $900,000 to the Lupus Foundation, the Baltimore School for the Arts and the Make-A-Wish Foundation over the past calendar year.
NBA star Carmelo Anthony also nabbed a spot on the most generous list, coming in at number 22.
According to The Giving Back Fund, the “Giving Back 30” list is compiled based on media reports of charitable giving by sports and entertainment professionals and information provided by more than 250 celebrity publicists, attorneys, agents agencies, and managers about their clients.
