Helmsley estate: 136M to charity, $1M to dogs








NEW YORK Trustees of real estate baroness Leona Helmsley's estate say they're giving $136 million to charity with just $1 million going to the dogs.

Helmsley's estate announced 53 charitable grants Tuesday, the bulk of which went to New York City hospitals and medical research. The largest grant, $40 million, went to a digestive diseases center at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, while $35 million went to start two research facilities in Helmsley's name at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
The estate for Helmsley who died in 2007 at age 87 divided $1 million equally to 10 animal rights charities, including the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and several groups that train guide dogs for the blind.

Animal rights groups rejoiced last year at public reports that Helmsley specified in her will that her multibillion-dollar hotel and real estate empire should go entirely to dog-releated charities. The hotel queen's will had named her dog, Trouble, as a beneficiary.
But a surrogate court judge ruled in February that trustees for the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust had sole authority to decide which charities benefit from her estate.

"Throughout their lives, the Helmsleys were committed to helping others through the innovations of medical research of responding to those in need during critical times and in other areas," the trustees said in a statement Tuesday. "We now have the privilege of continuing their good works by providing support where it will make a difference."
The grants include $25 million to create a Helmsley Center for

Electrophysiology the study of electrical properties of cells and tissues at Mount Sinai, and $10 million for the Helmsley Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center.
More than $15 million was donated to health care systems in South Dakota, including advanced cancer treatment funding at a Mitchell, S.D., hospital and hospital pharmacy funding in Sioux Falls, S.D.
The foundation gave several $200,000 donations to city homeless and poverty programs such as Citymeals-on-Wheels and Bowery Mission.
Helmsley's fortune, with much of the holdings in real estate, had been estimated at $5 billion to $8 billion after her death.

Yea, she was totally cranky I guess but anyone who leaves money to help animals is okay by me. LOL.

I've always given donations and my time to animals. They are my soft spot. If I had money, I would totally give more but that's why I help and do rescue. I figure it's my way of giving back a little bit.
