Best Philanthropist 

Stephen Colbert

Readers Pick

Leaving behind his hyper-conservative persona and Comedy Central show, Charleston native Stephen Colbert decided to use his move to CBS’s Late Show to give back. Using money raised by auctioning off his old news desk and set pieces from The Colbert Report, Colbert partnered with Share Fair Nation and ScanSource to fund every classroom project in South Carolina on DonorsChoose.org. With a donation of more than $800,000, more than 800 teachers at over 375 schools across the state received funding for supplies, equipment, and anything else they may need to help students. It was an incredible show of generosity and a reminder that charity begins at home.
