The owner of the Baltimore Ravens is the latest in a list of high-profile donors giving funds to the rebuilding of the three St. Landry Churches burned by arson.

According to WBAL, the team confirmed that owner Steve Bisciotti has contributed $100,000 to the cause.

That fundraiser is continuing to climb higher, reaching well past its goal of $1.8 million. As of 4:45 p.m. the gofundme was 10,000 away from $2 Million.

Bisciotti is not the first high profile donor that has contributed. Wednesday night, Chrissy Teigen pushed the gofundme closer to its goal of $1.8 Million which it later surpassed. Teigen donated $20,000.

Other high-profile donors include Aileen Getty, Megyn Kelly, Susan Sarandon, and Patricia Arquette.

Closer to home, Giles Automotive will be matching donations dollar for dollar up to $50,000 for their 30-day campaign. Donations can be made at any IBERIABANK location.
