LAST MONTH, Grammy Award-winner Chance The Rapper donated $1 million to Chicago’s Public Schools.
But it would seem his charitable efforts don’t send there.
The rapper recently celebrated his 24th birthday in his Chicago hometown with friends T-Pain, Big Bird, and Ludacris and raised over $100,000 for charity.
The rapper with give the money to his non-profit called SocialWorks.
The non-profit’s mission is “to empower the youth through arts, education, and civic engagement.”
The New Chance Arts & Literature Fund aims to reduce the funding gap for Chicago Public Schools. The announcement came weeks after he donated a whopping $1 million to CPS. Chance said he was moved to take more action following a disappointing meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner.
“Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positioning,” Chance said during a press conference at Chicago’s Westcott Elementary School. “If the governor does not act, CPS will be forced to end school 13 days early, which means over 380,000 kids will not have adult supervised activities in June and could possibly be put in harm’s way.”
