I don’t believe any money was donated. Many groups have called on James Cameron to donate some of the proceeds to indigenous peoples or to the environment.
Sadly, none of the profits realized from Avatar’s massive success were donated to environmental charities (despite, as henry noted, a public demand for such a program to be set up) — or if they were, those donations were never documented or made public.
However, some people, including the chief of the EPA (Lisa P. Jackson), cite the mere fact of Avatar’s financial success as a help to green efforts. She says that the massive financial support people gave Avatar’s message of environmental (and indigenous) awareness translates directly into a political mandate from the people to fund environmental reform.
