The Shawn Carter Foundation and The Clara Lionel Foundation will each contribute to the $2 million donation. According to a statement, the finances will support the homeless population, the elderly, children of healthcare workers, the incarcerated, and undocumented workers.
Both foundations also aim to provide COVID-19 testing for all NYC residents. The money is also being distributed to charities such as the ACLU, Mayor’s Fund for L.A., Fund for Public Schools and the New York Immigration Coalition.
