Chance The Rapper Pledges $1 Million To Chicago Mental Health Services

The 25-year-old rapper seems to love giving back in big ways. The rapper has decided to donate $1 million to help improve mental health services in his hometown of Chicago. Chance made the announcement during the second annual summit for his nonprofit organization, SocialWorks, on Thursday (October 4). SocialWorks also announced a new initiative called “My State of Mind,” which will focus on improving mental health resources and guiding people to the correct services in the Cook County area. “We need a new space to get information on how they feel and where they can go,” he explained. Chance didn’t stop there. He also announced that he is continuing his New Chance enrichment fund for Chicago Public Schools for the second year. “This year, 20 more schools will get $100K,” he said. “We will be upping the game in terms of equity, in terms of what is rightfully yours. Principals, teachers, we got your back.”
