When celebrities support charities, there’s always the suspicion that they’re only doing it for the publicity. You can’t say that about Keanu Reeves though, as he’s spent tons of money on things that help the disadvantaged without telling anyone.
“Do they really care about this, or do they just want to not seem like a jerk?”
That’s a common thought that must occur to most people when they see a celebrity posting about a cause on social media.
But then again, this is at least better than finding out that a celebrity is actually a terrible person.
Keanu Reeves has proved that he’s actually a great person. He doesn’t even care if you don’t know about it.
Before you learn what it is that he’s done, just consider how little you know about Keanu Reeves’s private life. He’s Canadian, plays bass guitar and that’s about it.
Apart from that, you probably don’t know all that much about who he is.
Well, he’s also an incredibly generous philanthropist.
All that Reeves has said about this is that he’s started a “private foundation that’s been running for five or six years, and it helps aid a couple of children’s hospitals and cancer research. I don’t like to attach my name to it. I just let the foundation do what it does.”
And that’s all that he’s said on the issue.
So what is this foundation, and what are its achievements?
Keanu Reeves has never said! He’s that modest.
But it is possible to speculate and make informed guesses.
The website Look To The Stars.org tirelessly researches the charitable work of a range of celebrities. It has identified 13 different charities and foundations that Keanu Reeves is attached to, a respectable amount.
But is this is just the tip of the iceberg?
Of the charities listed on the website, Spinal Cord Opportunities for Rehabilitation Endowment (SCORE) is the only one where Keanu Reeves is the only known celebrity supporter.
SCORE helps victims of spinal industries in a range of ways. It provides financial support, sponsors mentoring programs and supports paralysis cure research. That’s a pretty good cause!
Keanu Reeves is also listed as one of two supporters of CoachArt, along with Jeffrey Katzenberg.
Coachart helps children and families impacted with chronic illnesses by creating arts and athletic communities.
However, Keanu Reeves does not appear on the list of CoachArt’s supporters. So could this be the charity that Reeves has secretly given lots of money to?
If it is, then Reeves has a lot to be proud of. CoachArt provides 10,000 hours of free lessons to children each year and has won numerous awards!
All that can be certain is that Keanu Reeves has given millions of dollars to a range of charities. He shows no signs of changing this!
In all, he must have transformed millions of lives!
But Reeves doesn’t feature on many lists of the most charitable celebrities thanks to his discretion. It seems certain that his contributions are equal to (or even greater than) that of Matt Damon, Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus, all of whom have famously created charities and foundations of their own.
The only difference between Keanu Reeves and the other celebrities is that the other celebrities actively broadcast their philanthropy!
It’s hard not to respect someone who gives so generously while keeping quiet about it. But it’s also frustrating, as we really want to know what Reeves’s charitable contributions are in their entirety!
