The first thing he did was give a total of about $249,000 to a couple of nonprofits - Girls Inc. and three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger - and said the woman plans to give away as much as $50 million in the future.
In court documents, the lottery victor asked a judge to allow the lottery winnings to be paid to a designated trust that keeps her anonymous.
The woman filed a lawsuit against the state to remain anonymous, but lawyers were allowed to pick up a lump sum of $352m in Powerball winnings.
"We recognize the tremendous interest this prize has generated but hope you appreciate our client's desire to maintain a sense of normalcy by keeping her name confidential", William Shaheen, one of the woman's attorneys, said in a statement.
The lawsuit describes the anonymous victor as an "engaged community member" who wants to continue to shop and attend public events "without being known or targeted as the victor of a half-billion dollars".
"The lottery is a business so they want to sell tickets, they want to put a face to the win", he said.
