The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals A6

There’s a new report floating around about Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, and how even though they raised $2.6 million for “charity,” they actually only donated $5,000 to charities. Unbelievable – and NOT okay!

Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman published a breakdown of BTWF’s 2012 tax report. According to the report, the foundation claimed $2.6 million in assets, with donations coming in at $2.6 million. Here’s where all that money went:

$300,000 in strategic consulting

$62,836 on stage productions

$50,000 on social media

$50,000 on event coordination

$406,552 on legal

$150,000 on philanthropic consulting

$60,000 on research

$58,768 on publicity fees

$78,000 on travel

$72,000 on salaries

$808,661 on “other”

$5,000 on grants to organizations or individuals

$5,000 on grants!? Can you believe that? I think that is so wrong – and someone should have to be accountable for this. According to the company’s mission statement, they aim to:

…foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. The Foundation is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world.

We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world. Together, we will move towards acceptance, bravery and love.

Are you as disgusted as I am? More at Gawker
