Beyonce Knowles is more than just a triple threat (singer,actor, and dancer), she is also a philanthropist. The performer personally gave $100,000 to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund. The donation will benefit those ravaged by Hurricane Ike in the Houston and eastern Texas area.

At the request of Houston's Mayor Bill White, the relief fund was established to help victims of the hurricane that have lost their homes, property and jobs. The relief fund will also provide financial support to non-profit organizations that have aided in the immediate relief of Hurricane Ike victims by providing temporary shelter and food.

A native of Houston, Beyonce is also organizing a fundraiser benefiting Hurricane Ike victims through the Survivor Foundation. Supported by the Knowles family, the Survivor Foundation assists citizens affected by disasters as well as children suffering from AIDS and homelessness.

Aside from her charitable contributions, Beyonce will also be releasing her third solo album in November.
