Johnny Carson Still Giving Back

Filed under: Inspiration

Although he passed away in 2005, Johnny Carson's charitable foundation is still giving!

$156 million was transferred from the comedian's estate to the John W. Carson Foundation, which gives the foundation a larger bank account than most charities.

Johnny never did much to publicize his good deeds when he was alive, but he gave sizable donations to environmental groups, AIDS charities, schools, children’s aid organizations, and not-for-profits in his home state of Nebraska.

Just last year, the foundation donated $4 million to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, $100,000 for the Los Angeles Free Clinic and $125,000 for a Planned Parenthood high school sex education initiative.

Amazing.
