Chance The Rapper Announces $1,000,000 Donation To Chicago Public Schools

After last week’s meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner about school funding didn’t go as well as planned, Chance The Rapper vowed to take things into his own hands.

The talented musician announced a press conference for 2pm CST Monday afternoon at Westcott Elementary School and live streamed the event via Instagram and Periscope.

During the conference, Chance discussed the meeting he had, being educated by the public school system, fighting for more funding, budget cuts, how others can help the cause, and much more.

The GRAMMY Award-winning artist didn’t stop there, and revealed that he’s donating a whopping $1 million to Chicago Public Schools and $10,000 to ten different schools individually!
