Chance The Rapper is putting his money back into his neighborhoods…Chicago Public Schools.
Days after his frustrating meeting with Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner about school funding, the 3x Grammy Award-winning rapper announced his $1 million donation to the Chicago Public School Foundation.
Chance, born Chancelor Bennett, held a press conference on Monday (March 6) at the Wescott Elementary School on the southside of Chicago.
He thanked his fans for making the donation possible through ticket sales from his upcoming tour as well as an “unprecedented” coordination between Ticketmaster, LiveNation, and AEG, and independent promoters and venues around the country.
This makes me so happy. Way to Go Chance The Rapper such an excellent thing to do for the community. I can’t wait for the day i can give back like this
