Baseball star Alex Rodriguez – also known as A-Rod – is reported to have made a large donation to Madonna's charity for children in Malawi.

Rodriguez – third baseman for the New York Yankees – is said to have given $500,000 to Raising Malawi, a charity the singer established to help the African nation’s one million orphans gain access to food, education and medical care.

“Obviously when you’re talking about donors, these are private things,” said the charity’s director, Philippe van den Bossche. “I would never reveal information about any donor.”

The money is expected to be used to help build a new school in the impoverished country.

“We’re building a girls’ school, which will bring the best resources from around the world with a specific focus on medicine, education and the law,” said van den Bossche. “It will be based on the British system – as is taught in private schools Madonna’s children Lourdes and Rocco attend… We want programs that can be copied in developing countries throughout the world. Not just a celebrity one-off.”
