I've read somewhere that his foundation helps aid children's hospitals and cancer research as well as dealing with educational issues. Sorry I can't remember the source. Also, as I recall, no name for his foundation was mentioned.

His sister Kim does not live with him. That article stating he had turned his house into a hospital for her was untrue.
His foundation has nothing to do with his house. His house is owned by a trust, just like most celebrities. His foundation is an actual charity foundation that donates to various charities - cancer research, education, etc.
What is the name of this foundation? I, too, have looked up his name in all the usual not not for profit vetting sites. Is it Canadian?

In the US, by law, his name would have to be listed on a tax document.

Excuse me, but that article is proof of nothing. I want to see Keanu's name on a tax form before I believe anything. I want to know what is the name of his charitable foundation. Does it have a name? Who is on the board? I've read that article, it proves nothing.

I have read this and again, this is not proof of anything. It is just something he told an interviewer.

Luca, foundations must be registered as 501c3. They must file tax forms. On these forms, the names of the officers of the foundations must be listed. You can look these up on various websites. I have done so and found nothing with Keanu's name. You can't do this by proxies. It must be under your name to be legal.

Given no proof, I do not believe that Keanu has a foundation. He may have given money to a charity, but that's not the same as having a foundation set up whose purpose is disburse charitable monies.

Believing that Keanu has a foundation based on this evidence is comparable to donna/ardith believing that Keanu is gay. Lots of innuendo, no real proof.

I have a stupid question...what does it matter? The man clearly has a giving heart. Many times he has taken a pay cut to help out movie projects. He gave Harley's to the Matrix crew, and I'm sure donated plenty. I honestly, in the whole of my heart, believe for Keanu, money is just a side effect of his job. He LOVES acting, it is his life blood, that which keeps him alive. Does he enjoy having the ability to afford things, most likely. It is the force that drives him, nope.

In my humble opinion..giving without people knowing is the true way to give. I had a friend teach me that "True giving comes not when you have enough to give, True giving comes when you only have enough to share" and trust..been there before and not too long ago. hahaha. Does that mean, to me, that because Keanu has more than enough to share that he doesn't truely give..nope. I believe he would give even if he only had enough to share.

I find it funny when people donate to a cause or a church and they get a receipt for taxes...I know..I'm not like most folks..lol!

What pattern? I just wanted proof of Keanu's foundation. For all I know he never even gave that interview in which he said he had one. The tabloid that printed the article could have simply manufactured it. They manufacture a lot of things.

So right now we have no proof that Keanu Reeves has a foundation. OK, I can live with that.

Paranoid much, Luca?

"I have a stupid question...what does it matter?"

Because I'm curious.

My guess is that Keanu has a trust, which is private, and this trust gives to charity, owns his properties, and makes his investments, all privately.

We really do not know how much he gives, or to what. It is all rumor. It could be real, it could be illusory. We just don't know.

Not everyone is part of the media wh@re gravy train. i.e., the Brangelina sell your kids' pix for millions of dollars for your "foundation" train.
Just because you "see it" doesn't mean it exists/makes it legitimate.

Addendum re trust.

like thoughts, just because you don't see them or hear them, doesn't mean that they don't exist.
