The Douglas Foundation intends to give $50 million to St. Lawrence College, Douglas’ alma mater, Westwood’s Sinai Temple, the Kirk Douglas Theater, and the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital, according to a recent report in The Mirror.
On the one-year anniversary of his father Kirk Douglas’ passing, Michael Douglas pays tribute to him.

The goal of the foundation, according to its website, is to “help those who are otherwise unable to help themselves.” Douglas, a Jewish immigrant’s son, lived in poverty as a child. In exchange, he made several donations to organizations, hospitals, and schools. These include movements at his former high school, in Amsterdam, New York, as well as in Jerusalem and Southern California. It is unknown what will happen to the remainder of his wealth, although it is rumored that his son Michael, who is also a well-known actor, and his two other less-famous kids will not receive anything.

And it doesn’t appear that Michael required the additional funds given that his estimated net worth is $300 million. It was also not a surprise that he decided to devote his riches to charity. Douglas and his wife discussed their foundation and their goal to donate the funds to charity in an interview they gave to The Hollywood Reporter in 2015.
