Via LifeIsTremendez:

Kanye West has broken a donation record at his late mother’s Donda’s House foundation, donating a whopping $133,000 to support the young and aspiring artists in their hometown of Chicago.

Complex reports that a portion of Ye’s donation came from the money he’d earned by performing multiple shows for the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris recently, while the rest was out of pocket. There are currently 160 artists who are supported by the foundation, and Yeezy’s generous donation will no doubt benefit them greatly!

“Kanye’s generosity is greatly appreciated and will improve our capacity with new staff as we deliver the high-quality arts programming that our participants deserve,” the charity’s Executive Director Donnie Smith said in a statement.
