Chance The Rapper has been continuously doing what he can to improve the lives of kids in Chicago. "There's so much talent and creativity in the communities that these schools serve - and Chance The Rapper embodies what can happen when that creativity is unleashed".

Google is distributing the $1.5 million to Chance's SocialWorks and Children First Fund. The tech giant will give a $1 million grant to Chance's nonprofit, SocialWorks, and $500,000 directly to Chicago Public Schools. Google officials said the company believes computer science is a critical part of education and helps students and educators develop technical skills for the future.

Earlier today, Chance took to Twitter to unveil that Google funded coding classes for 20 public schools in the south and west sides of Chicago with a $1M donation to his SocialWorks initiative with an addition $500K being donated towards Chicago Public Schools' CS4ALL initiative.

As of late, Chance has made multiple school visits to announce major donations.

Chicago's philanthropic rapper brought an early Christmas to his home city on Monday, gifting 300 pairs of unreleased Jordan Retro 11s to a crowd of high school students.
