More Than Just a (Football) Club

Barcelona are doing something quite amazing and unique, they will donate 0.7 percent of their annual income starting from the 2006/07 season to the United Nations as a contribution to their Millennium Development Goals campaign. And that is just the start of it -

Laporta confirmed that Barcelona's famous scarlet and blue shirts would not be sponsored by a commercial brand but could be used instead to promote humanitiarian causes.
"We are planning on using the shirts to carry a humanitarian message as part of our plans to become more than a club in the rest of the world," he said.

If 0.7% rings a bell then your probably remembering the amount of GNP pledged by richer countries for the UN millenium develop project.
