Recently released tax filings show that power-couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt combined to give away more than $8 million in 2006. The charitable donations went to such organizations as Global Green USA, Doctors Without Borders, Global Aids Alliance, and the Daniel Perl Foundation. We expect that figure to rise for 2007 — as Pitt has already contribute $5 million to the Make It Right Foundation, in addition to other groups. Here’s the breakdown from Fox News:

According to the first federal filing for the Jolie Pitt Foundation, the couple put over $8 million into their tax-free instrument. Pitt put in $4,402,317. Jolie donated $4,123,613. Their first years’ donations totaled a whopping 2,367,935. The biggest amounts were $1 million apiece to Doctors Without Borders (International Division) and to Global AIDS Alliance. The smaller grants went to Namibia Red Cross Action Program ($137,935), which is nice, since the couple caused chaos there when camped out during the birth of baby Shiloh; $100,000 to the Daniel Pearl Foundation (the couple made the movie “A Mighty Heart” about Pearl — this was a sop to his widow, Marianne, whom Jolie played); another $100,000 to Global Green USA and to the Epidermolysis Bulloma Medical Research Foundation; $5,000 each to two orphanages visited by Jolie; and $20,000 to an art park in Los Angeles.”

The expenses for the foundation totaled an amazing first-year total of $27,000 — something that will probably increase as more staff are added to handle the distribution of funds. Still, kind of makes you understand why Prince Harry is a bit upset over his foundation’s year one tabs.
