Jane Fonda

I Didn't Screw Charities Out of $$

Jane Fonda is NOT a cheapskate whose charity is a charade ... she's actually an extremely generous woman who continues to open her personal vault to worthy causes ... say the people on her team.

Fonda is president and chairman of the Jane Fonda Foundation ... which has been called out by media outlets for not making charitable donations over a recent 5-year period.

Jane donated huge sums back in 2004 and 2005 ... so much that it was supposed to cover the next 5 years, and the amount exceeds the minimum donation required by law ... Jane's people say.

There was, however, a glitch.  In 2011 ... Jane dove back into her bank account to continue making donations.  But someone goofed and paid it out of Jane's personal account rather than the foundation's.  When the mistake came to light, the person who screwed up got the axe.

Foundation officials say that error has been corrected and they're all good now.

So how generous have they been this year? We're told the JFF and the Fonda Family Foundation have given out more than $500K to needy groups.

rich peoples charitable donations in the U S of A are nothing but bull****, it is pure tax deductions,
that means all the charity takes away tax money for healthcare, schools, transportation, you know, the whole build of society, jane fonda ain't payin for school, for healthcare, for anything to make life better for all in USA, since she DOES NOT PAY TAXES, charity bull****, charity is only charity if you pay out of your own pocket, AND you also pay taxes in full, like normal people in the rest of the world, charity is not a tax escape anywhere but in the USA, rich people writnig the laws, everybody else screwed out of taxes to pay for schools, healthcare etc....
