I'm guessing it's her corporations' money. I'm thinking she's not exactly going into her purse and getting out the wallet, but it is connected to her. Things get very complex when you live and work in the circle in which she does. Money makes money. She puts ideas together to give, contacts people (well, her people contact their people) to see if they want to be in on her "give", they'd almost have to be idiots to say, "No thanks"...and everybody wins in one way or another. They get her name recognition, in association with their company .... where's the loss here? I do remember one little company that didn't want to take part in one of her things because they were too small, and it would be a real problem for them to fill orders that would come their way from the Oprah connection. They were not interested in expanding. I get that.
