Mike Gives Back

Last week Parade Magazine published The Giving Back Fund's second annual Giving Back 30 survey, a ranking of celebrities who made the largest public donations in 2007. Of course, Oprah Winfrey is at the #1 spot again dropping more than $50 million in donations last year.

As far as athletes, Michael Jordan came in at #7, donating $5 million to Hales Franciscan High School, a historically African-American all-boys school in Chicago, and New Jersey Nets forward Richard Jefferson came in at #12 for donating $3.5 million to the University of Arizona for a new basketball and volleyball facility.

Tiger Woods is ranked 18th after donating $1.3 million to the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, California while Tracy McGrady is at #20 for donating a cool $1 million to the Stand Up Darfur organization and related projects. Former San Antonio Spur, David Robinson and his wife Valerie ranked 29th after donating close to $780,000 to the David Robinson Foundation which supports the Carver Academy and various mentoring and hunger programs.
