The Mega Wealthy Evil Cheat Code: Charity Organizations only Donate 5%

Tom Brady and Gisele’s charitable foundation gave away just 0.08 PER CENT of former couple’s $770m fortune during their 15 year relationship – with one Costa Rican charity handed a meager $300

  • Tom Brady, 45, and 42-year-old Gisele Bundchen’s 13-year marriage was officially declared over on October 28
  • The divorce has thrown a spotlight on their businesses, properties and charity – and it has now emerged their charity has only dished out small sums
  • Bundchen founded Luz Foundation in 2007 and was evangelical about its work, saying it was ‘why God gave me to do what I can do’
  • Yet between 2007 and 2019 – the most recent tax filing – only $640,402 of their $700 million has been given away through the foundation
  • A Costa Rican environmental charity received $300, and the World Wildlife Fund was given $900 
  • Among the biggest grants was $80,000 given to Pointing Out the Great Way Foundation, a Massachusetts charity that promotes Indo-Tibetan meditation

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s charity, to which the supermodel said ‘my life is devoted’, was in an uncomfortable spotlight on Thursday as it emerged that the $700 million former power couple only contributed minuscule sums to its work.

Bundchen, 42, and Brady, 45, were granted a divorce on October 28, after 13 years of marriage.

Their split was said to be efficient, as the pair had signed a meticulously-prepared pre-nup, which avoided any public fighting over their property empire or custody of their two children.

But the divorce also sparked interest in their charity – and led to the revelation that less than 0.09 percent of their wealth was directed towards the Luz Foundation.

It gave away $640,000 of the couple’s $770 million wealth during their 15 year relationship, with some charities handed sums as small as $300.

The Brazilian-born supermodel founded the Luz Foundation in 2007, saying it was to provide grants and support to young girls.

‘My life is devoted to this,’ she said, in a 2015 interview with the Sydney Morning Herald.
