Big Sean Donates $25K To Aid Homeless College Students

Big Sean is doing big things in his hometown of Detroit!

The Grammy-nominated rapper has donated $25,000 through his Sean Anderson Foundation to establish an endowment for a Wayne State University program dedicated to fight college homelessness.

The Helping Individuals Go Higher (HIGH) initiative, created by Jacqueline Wilson in 2013, provides students who are struggling with housing or finances with housing support, clothes, books, transportation and child-care help.

In a press release, Wilson said, “The Sean Anderson Foundation’s investment in the HIGH Program shows their commitment to assisting those in need. With this gift, we will be able to help Wayne State students who are experiencing homelessness work toward a brighter future.”

Myra Anderson, Big Sean’s mother and president of the Sean Anderson Foundation said, “We see the HIGH Program as an important component of ensuring success at Wayne State, and we are proud to help strengthen its mission. We aim to boost graduation rates at the university by providing support to students facing hardship.”

Kudos to Big Sean for making a difference!
