Chance the Rapper is pledging to give $1 million to mental health services in Chicago, according to ABC 7 Chicago. The rapper announced the news at the summit for his nonprofit, SocialWorks.
Six different mental wellness providers will receive $100,000 grants in Cook County, Illinois, stemmed by his donation. He called the new initiative “My State of Mind,” which will serve as a mental health resource for Chicagoans.
“We need a new space to get information on how they feel and where they can go,” Chance said. “This year, 20 more schools will get $100K. We will be upping the game in terms of equity, in terms of what is rightfully yours. Principals, teachers, we got your back.”
