Chance the Rapper to Donate ANOTHER Million Dollars to CPS

By Urbanmatter Chicago @UMatterChicago

Chicago’s favorite son has done it again – and literally no one is surprised.

In a last-minute visit to Michele Clark High School on Monday, Chance the Rapper announced yet another MILLION dollar donation being made out to Chicago Public Schools.

Of course, this isn’t really a new venture for Chance: the check, provided by Jewel-Osco, will round the total amount given by the rapper’s New Chance Arts & Literature Fund up to a crisp 3 million dollars. And that’s just in the past year alone.

The endowment also marks the biggest monetary donation made by Jewel-Osco in the Chicago-based grocer’s 118 year history, so you can officially color us impressed.

In addition to ya’know, just casually dropping off a million bucks, Chance also used his visit to MCHS as an opportunity to talk to local teens about the importance of understanding tax codes, school funding and public policy –leaving us to wonder, truly, is there is anything this man can’t do?

Seriously, I’m asking.
