As Oprah Winfrey's talk show comes to an end, her charity, The Angel Network, will also be closing its doors, the Huffington Post reports.

Oprah's charity began in 1998 using donations from her talk show viewers. But with the impeding end of the talk show in 2011, it was decided to shut down the charity too, Angel Network spokeswoman Angela DePaul said.

The charity ceased taking donations this week and its website said it plans to dissolve as soon as the remaining funds are distributed. The website also thanked everyone who donated over the years in a statement, "Oprah and the Angel Network's Board of Directors are extremely grateful to the nearly 150,000 donors who have collectively given more than $80 million to our public charity since it began in 1998."
