That’s what we call a “complex sentence” — there are two clauses. (By the way, there are a lot of problems with the sentence — perhaps you copied inaccurately). First, I’ll provide a correct and slightly simpler version: The woman who won $7,000,000 in the lottery gave about half the money (that) she got to charity for orphans. Main clause: The woman gave about half the money to charity (for orphans). Subject: The woman Direct object: half the money Prepositional phrase: to charity (Note, we can use a prepositional phrase, usually with “to”, instead of an indirect object. Such prepositional phrases come after the direct object. Alternatively, we could indeed say “The woman gave orphans the money.” However, this construction doesn’t work well when the IO consists of multiple words in a phrase.) Relative clause (not an independent sentence): (that) she got: Describes the money
