Barbra Donates $10k To Malibu Fire Stations

MALIBU, Calif. -- A $10,000 donation from entertainer Barbra Streisand will be used to purchase new tools and equipment for Los Angeles County fire stations in Malibu.

The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday formally accepted the donation, which will go to the five Battalion 5 stations in the Malibu area. The battalion has additional stations in Agoura, Calabasas, Topanga and Westlake Village.

The donation was made on behalf of The Streisand Foundation. Since it was founded in 1986, the Santa Monica-based foundation has distributed $15 million, largely to environmental, civil liberties and women's organizations.

Barbra Joins LACMA Board

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has added four high-profile members to its board of trustees including actress and recording artist Barbra Streisand.

"This is a truly remarkable time to be part of LACMA. I am certain that our new trustees agree and will bring an added level of experience and engagement to the museum's transformation," board chairwoman Nancy Daly Riordan said in a statement.

"This new group of trustees will bring even more diversity of experience and community interests to the leadership of our continuing transformation of the museum."

Streisand, a supporter of humanitarian and environmental causes and a funder of the Clinton Climate Change Initiative, collected German Expressionist art by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Emil Nolde as a young art enthusiast, the museum said. More recently, she has acquired works by John Singer Sargent, Robert Henri, William McGregor Paxton and others. Two pieces from her collection, Edward Hopper's "Summer in the City" and Thomas Hart's "Haying," were on long-term display in LACMA's American Art galleries.

A Statement from Barbra

For Immediate Release:

In response to press inquiries concerning campaign contributions by Barbra Streisand relating to the 2008 presidential nomination process, Ms. Streisand has issued the following statement:

“I’m very excited about the strength of the Democratic field for the 2008 presidential election, and I’m looking forward to a lively and healthy primary debate that discusses the key issues facing this country. Because I want to see the frontrunners have the financial backing they need to be competitive during this process, I’ve decided to make the maximum allowable primary donation to Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama. As the conversation continues, I may make contributions to other candidates as well.”
