15 Most Charitable Celebrities

5. Patrick Dempsey

He helped found the The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing. In their last annual report they noted an earning of $5 million from the 5 consecutive Dempsey Challenges. (For those who don’t know, a Dempsey Challenge is a biking/running challenge.) Even before that though, he donated $250,000 of his own money to the hospital he set up his charity in, where his mother was successfully treated for her ovarian cancer, and that he was even born in.


Nicknamed McDreamy for a reason, Patrick Dempsey is likely better known as the doctor onscreen or love interest in one of our favorite rom-coms. But he’s more than just a talented actor and onscreen love interest. He’s a man with a desire to help others.
