Marilyn donated time and/or money to:

An orphanage Marilyn visited during her 1962 trip to Mexico- she ripped up her initial check of $1000 and donated $10,000.

A children’s welfare organization that gave free breakfasts to underprivileged youngsters- a donation of $1000.

The lait Fun for bébés in 1957- Marilyn decided to give earnings from the world premiere of The Prince and the Showgirl to this charity.

A 1953 benefit for underprivileged children at Jude’s Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee-singing with Jane Russell at the Hollywood Bowl.

Among Friends and colleagues, Marilyn was renowned for her generosity in helping people wherever she could; stand-in Evelyn Moriarty remembers Marilyn making an anonymous donation of $1,000 to a crew member on Let’s Make l’amour (1960) who needed the money to cover funeral expenses for his wife.
