I don't think I'd set up a charity. Instead, I'd go around helping people and places that I thought deserved it.

Either way, you're doing some good.

That doesn't really help people or animals in need.

A Charity that helps people open their own businesses.
The caveat being that 1% (I'd always thought 1%-5%, but 5% is a bit high for a sustainable model for any business.) of all profits from that business be returned to the charity to help fund the next business, and so on. This could be paid in stock, or direct capital injection. Else, if the business is a unique case, they could volunteer their time, or use their business to help promote the charity.
Help everyone achieve their dreams, and don't focus on one sector, one niche, or one model.
The charity could expand into non-profit once our investments and income from the businesses we helped to open have bloomed into a steady revenue stream. That would open doors for research contributions, volunteer work to help struggling communities, and outreach centers, in addition to arms of the charity handling other sectors, such as veteran support world wide, technology-focused vocational schools for low-income families, security awareness outreach, and more.
I'd travel for the charity and speak with people around the world with innovative ideas, business models, and progressive thoughts. Partner with F.A.N.G. and other fortune 50 monsters to further our reach and visibility. And then - push into extending assistance on a larger scale.
Build clean energy infrastructure for struggling countries. Promote research into new transport models for spacecraft. Build a f*cking space elevator, and what people think be damned.
Do what needs to be done to stop the pointless political brainwashing, bickering, and infighting that has become rampant worldwide, and help humanity concrete its existence before we wipe ourselves out...because we're on the road to doing so.

I've always thought that would be what I'd love to do, but the funds to do that would be monstrous, and it would take more time than I have left to bloom into what I dream of it being.

I would do what a lot of these other rich people are doing and create a investment fund for other charities and innovators. Have a good idea? Here is some money to make it happen.

I would create an organization to help people take care of their pets. (medicine, food,...etc)
Also to make the living conditions on animal shelters better for the animals and help them find good homes.

The last thing is I would make an organization that helps underprivileged kids get education from preschool all the way to college.

I would start multiple charities.

- The first would be to offer the service of healthcare professionals coming into health classes at schools to offer medically accurate sexual education that will include classes on various forms of birth control, how to use them, and teach about safe sex and consent. I would also provide the confidential service of offering these birth control methods to teens and young adults. They will be having sex anyway, so they should be informed and protected.

- Research more innovative ways to make renewable energy sources more cost effective and efficient. Once that has been established, I will offer these to people in more rural and low income communities. While it can be available to anyone, those in lower income areas will benefit greatly from this advancement.

- I would establish education, training, and work experience for those people that need it. I don't think one's family, neighborhood, education, or medical impairment should mean that they are unable to achieve career and personal goals.

- I would heavily invest in research and development for less harmful forms of disease treatment, prevention, or cures. I just saw a commercial for one's own stem cells to be used in various treatments at a clinic close to me. It's happening, and I want to ensure these amazing treatments continue.
