Time's Up: Who's Giving What

"People are digging through the list to see who gave what and comparing," says one industry insider of the campaign, which has received big donations from the likes of Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams and Reese Witherspoon.

Between Dec. 20 and Jan. 7, the Time's Up anti-harassment GoFundMe campaign exceeded its $15 million target, and organizers have raised the goal to $17 million. As dollar figures climb, so does the sense that ranking on the donors list is a new status symbol.

"People are digging through the list to see who gave what," says an insider. Top donors include Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg's Wunderkinder Foundation and CAA ($2 million each); Mark Wahlberg at $1.5 million and WME adding $500,000 (given in Michelle Williams' name amid the recent furor over unequal reshooting fees) to its earlier $1 million; Katie McGrath and J.J. Abrams, ICM Partners, and UTA at $1 million each; and Reese Witherspoon and Shonda Rhimes at $500,000 each. And while Page Six called out men who wore Time's Up pins to the Golden Globes but haven't donated, pins are not tied to contributions.

Still any sales from the new Time's Up online store — featuring tote bags, notebooks and T-shirts — are funneled to the cause.

Tongue wagging aside, the money is being put to good use: Donations are being funneled into Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, which will provide "support to women and men who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace and while in pursuit of their careers."
