Chance the Rapper is clearly all about supporting his city, and he just got some help from Google.org. They donated $1 million to his SocialWorks non-profit, and another $500,000 to public schools.

“Yesterday (Dec. 6), Chance paid a visit to 5th-grade students at the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Academy in Chicago where the kids were doing a coding activity with Chicago Googlers for Computer Science Education Week.

Besides doing some coding himself, Google.org announced its $1.5M donation which will focus on computer science education. While the $1M goes to SocialWorks, which Chance uses to help ensure city kids have access to arts, music, and coding, the $500K going to Chicago public schools will benefit it CS4All Initiative.”
