Details of Beyoncé Knowles's support for charities including Oxfam, American Foundation for AIDS Research, and Entertainment Industry Foundation. We have 71 articles about Beyoncé Knowles's philanthropy.
Trayvon Baker's insight:

Beyoncé Knowles – former Destiny’s Child soulstress – is not only one of the great survivors of the music industry, but also someone who cares deeply about people.

The list of charities she supports is both long and varied, but perhaps the greatest contribution she has made is the Survivor Foundation, an organization she founded with fellow Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. The foundation’s accomplishments are many, including the Music World Cares Christmas Carnival that enabled over 300 low-income households to enjoy a fun-filled day of food, entertainment, a visit from Santa Claus and free toys from the toy giveaway. The singer also held a series of food drives before her concerts in 2006 to collect the food that was so desperately needed by victims.

Beyoncé was also an Ambassador for the 2005 World Children’s Day, and released “Stand Up For Love,” the anthem for the event which takes place annually around the world on November 20 to raise awareness and funds for children’s causes.

Beyoncé donated a handbag to an auction benefitting Women's Fund for Scotland. But her concern for people is sometimes more discreet, as was shown when she visited two people who were injured during a fireworks accident at one of her concerts, arriving at the hospital shortly after the concert ended. Head nurse Darryl Williams said, “She was just very concerned about the people injured in the audience. It was unannounced and we kept it very low-key so that she could spend time with them.”

Beyoncé Gives Back to the Community

Trayvon Baker's insight:

Leading up to the release of her new album, pop artist Beyoncé Knowles releases her new single “God Bless the USA” earlier this week to help raise funds for New York Police, and 9/11 Fire Widow’s & Children’s Fund. While Knowles’ demanding career as a recording artist, actress, and fashion designer increases, she always attempts to make sure that she never forgets about her fans and the less fortunate. She dedicates this song to helping the families of deceased New York firefighters, police officers, EMS and Port Authority police killed in the line of duty.

Knowles initially recorded the inspirational song during the fall of 2008 to assist with President Obama’s campaign, but recently decided to edit it for a new cause. She plans to debut her song on “Piers Morgan Tonight” within a matter of days. “On behalf of New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund’s Board of Directors and the families of our fallen heroes, we are truly grateful for Beyoncé’s choice to support our charity and answer the call”  Stephen J. Dannhauser, chairman of the New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund explains to MTV reporter Jocelyn Vena.

“I think that it is extremely important for artists to remain humble and give back to their country,” comments DHS sophomore Mykiliah Thompson “It shows their true heart for the world.” Knowles told Ace Entertainment reporters “We were all affected by the tragedies of 911 and continue to keep the families who lost loved ones close to our hearts. Thank you Piers Morgan and CNN for helping to get the message out to everyone about this… Almost 10 years 9/11, it is still so painful for all Americans, especially those who lost loved ones.” “God Bless the USA” is now available on iTunes for purchase.

And let’s not forget what Beyonce did, back in the day, when she was in Destiny’s Child. After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, the performer, her family, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams started the Survivor Foundation to assist families that were displaced or struck with disease, as a result of the natural disaster. Over the years, the organization has donated more than $2.5 million to support Katrina victims in the Houston area. Two years ago, Beyonce and the Survivor team partnered with Feeding America to provide meals to food banks across the U.S.
