has had trouble coming up with box office hits as of late (and has had to contend with speculation
that his film company may not remain independent for much longer), but he's not exactly in the poor house. He's got a lavish townhouse in the Village and a massive spread in Connecticut. And he's diversified into cable channels
, and fashion companies
. Does he give back to the community? Not so much! At least not when it comes to writing checks in honor of his mother and late father, Miriam and Max, for whom his previous film company, Miramax was named (and which he sold to Disney for about $80 million in 1993). Last year, the Max Family Foundation, which is controlled by Harvey and his brother Bob
, handed out $96,000. When you subtract the foundation's legal and accounting expenses, though, the Weinsteins' charitable contributions total just $64,000. Documentation after the jump!
It's possible, of course, that he gave millions more without reporting it to the IRS as part of the foundation. Or that he has another foundation he uses for other donations. Given his not-so-generous rep—and ongoing business woes—perhaps not. Below, how Harvey and Bob allocated the $61,400:
