After donating $1million to Chicago Public Schools last month, the Chi-town native announced he’s launching the “New Chance Arts and Literature” fund. It’s his newest project with the Children First Fund. And guess what? The Chicago Bulls are helping with the launch in a major way, donating $1million towards his new endeavor. Nice!

 

“As an artist and an after-school teacher, I know the arts are essential. They teach students valuable lesson,” Chance said his announcement on Friday. “The fund will bring arts programs and materials to schools that have experienced a decrease in five-year graduation rates, experience budget cuts, lack of textbooks, and are without music or arts programs.”

 

The Coloring Book rapper snapped it up with Bulls President and COO Michael Reinsdorf shortly after the announcement.

Chance has raised $2.2 million total for CPS after the Bulls' donation. Other contributors include Scooter Braun (manager of Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and more), and Hannibal Buress.
