Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey announced Monday that she’s donating more millions to Morehouse College. The billionaire philanthropist donated $13 million to continue her scholarship program at the college, making her total gift $25 million.

According to CBS News, Monday’s donation makes her gifts to the school the largest endowment in Morehouse’s 152-year history.

Winfrey made the surprise announcement during a visit to the historically black, all-men’s university in honor of the scholarship program’s 30th anniversary.

 “I was really surprised to learn that it's been 30 years since I made that $12 million donation to Morehouse, so today I would like to add $13 million to that,” Winfrey announced to the young men.
