Radar Online has reported that Madonna has donated $1 million to an organization that has been considered a fraud. According to tax documents obtained by the site, Madge donated $1 million to Raising Malawi in 2012 -- which she founded with Michael Berg in 2006. Back in 2011, Roger Friedman of Showbiz411.com brought to light that the organization was the subject of "several investigations . . . for financial improprieties."
The site has reported that nearly $4 million of the funds were reportedly discovered missing from the charity's coffers. The executive director of the charity from 2005 to 2010 abandoned the organization after accusations began circulating that he used school funds for personal expenses -- such as free housing, a car and a driver and a golf club membership.
Madge's tax documents also show that she donated $5,000 to Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles, $5,000 to Ionia, Inc. -- an Arkansas recovery center and macrobiotic community, and $15,000 to the TJ Martell Foundation -- a cancer research organization.
Madonna previously promised to build a $15 million school for girls in Malawi, but later decided not to go through with it after upsetting residents of the country.
