Many celebrities have created their own foundations to support their causes and interests, offering grants for projects that fulfill specific guidelines. Some celebrities throw their weight behind already-established causes. You can find these organizations all over the internet. But you can spend days, weeks, or months of searching to find all of them and learn what each one is all about.
