The Milk star founded the J/P HRO Haitian Relief Organization in the wake of the January (10) earthquake and has spent months helping to rebuild the Caribbean nation.

The Clinton Foundation's generous donation will go towards a camp in Petionville, which is run by the Oscar winner's group, and Penn is delighted with the support.

He tells People.com, "The support of President Clinton and the Clinton Foundation is an extraordinary boost in our organisation's ability to continue its work in Haiti. From the beginning the Clinton Foundation staff and leadership have generously shared expertise and essential logistical support."
