I did contribute my share to help the typhoon Moracot rescue and reconstruction effort and had confidence that it had been put to good use where it was needed the most.
The following links have some interesting lists / spreadsheets which compare the donations of corporations, politicians, and entertainers / celebrities:
The Taipei Times had gathered the Moracot donations information from Taiwanese businesses and public figures as early as August 12, 2009.
The Stocks and Politics blog posted a summary as of August 13, 2009 and concluded that the DPP politicians had donated USD $1,036,000 vs. KMT politicians $136,000.
This Google document (written in Chinese-language and the currency used the New Taiwan Dollars) compared the donations as of August 22, 2009 between the amount given to China's 2008 Sichuan earthquake and the amount given to Taiwan's 2009 Morakot typhoon by Taiwan's business entity or public figure. It is the most extensive list that I could find so far.
From the above Google document, Ma Ying-jeou did not make any announcement of his personal donations (if any) to the Morakot typhoon but he did make announcement about his personal donation to the Shichuan earthquake.
I also failed to find any donations to Morakot typhoon by Ma using English-language internet search but I did find his donations to China's earthquake (considering Ma prefers to speak English for publicity).
The Singapore Red Cross Society reported on the fifth paragraph of the immediate above link that :
Taiwan, which China regards as a renegade province, said it would join the rescue effort, while its president-elect Ma Ying-jeou, who has moved to repair ties with China, donated 200,000 Taiwan dollars (6,500 US) from his own pocket.
The other pan-blue politicians who have donated to the Shichuan earthquake but not to the Morakot typhoon per the above Google document include some very prominent figures (but if you have subsequently made donations after the publication of the above Google Doc, you could write to them to update their records plus also leave your comment below this post for correction):
Former premier Liu Chao-shiuan ( 劉兆玄 click this link and find out where Ma sent him to now) 100,000 NTD vs. 0
Vice president Vincent Siew ( 蕭萬長) 150,000 NTD vs. 0
James Soong ( 宋楚瑜) 1 million NTD vs.0
Other noticeable observation is that former KMT chairman Wu Po-hsiung ( 吳伯雄) donated 5 times more to China than to Taiwan.
In order not to make this post extensive, I will not make any notes on donations by the business community, the readers are encouraged to consult the above lists / documents when they consider their business engagement such as supporting / purchasing certain products.
Taiwan's donations to China per the Xinhua News:
Among all these relief efforts, the assistance coming from Taiwan has reportedly topped that of any other nation in the world. Just days after the quake, the Republic of China (ROC) government proposed a NT$2 billion (US$67 million) aid package for mainland China, including NT$700 million (US$23 million) in cash made immediately available and NT$100 million (US$3 million) in relief supplies including 2,000 tons of rice. The remaining NT$1.2 billion (US$40 million) was earmarked for post-quake reconstruction projects to be funded from public donations.
By late May, cash donations from the ROC government, enterprises, organizations and individuals had already reached more than RMB780 million (US$113 million), according to news releases from the mainland China's State Council. Of the top five cash donors among multinationals, four were Taiwanese enterprises, including Formosa Plastics Group, Evergreen Group, Foxconn Technology Group and RT-Mart International Ltd.
China's donations to Taiwan per Taipei Times News:
ARATS said it received NT$450 million (US$13 million) in donations from people in China, adding it had given NT$150 million to the Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) and would wire the remaining NT$300 million next week.
Where did the donations to China go to?
I don't know, but these two links, although talking about China's domestic donations, may give us some hint:
I believe wherever our hearts belong, so too will our donations go to.
