Madonna has proved her devotion to Kabbalah - she donated more than $2.6 million (GBP1.8 million) to the religion in 2007.
The Material Girl showed her generosity by giving away $3.1 million (GBP2.1 million), the bulk of which went to the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles - a steep rise from the $250,000 (GBP172,000) she donated in 2006.
Tax papers for the singer's Ray of Light Foundation for the year 2007 show she also handed out $250,000 (GBP172,000) to Mobilization Against AIDS, $15,000 (GBP10,000) to the TJ Martell Foundation for Leukemia and Cancer Research, and smaller donations to All Saints Church in Pasadena, California, as well as several health groups.
She also gave almost $23,000 (GBP16,000) to an organisation that sets up playgrounds in Russia - but there was reportedly no listing of any donation to charities in Malawi, the African republic from which she adopted son David Banda in 2006.
