Big Sean donates $25,000 towards ending homelessness at Wayne State University

In 2015, Big Sean founded his Detroit-based nonprofit, the Sean Anderson Foundation, an initiative to help the disadvantaged youth of his city. He was recently able to donate $25,000 to Wayne State University, located in the Midtown district, for its Helping Individuals Go Higher (HIGH) program, which is devoted to eliminating college student homelessness.

His foundation’s website states, the donation will “provide short-term support to Wayne State students experiencing homelessness or precarious housing situations.”

Sean also donated $82,000 towards the Flint water crisis in order to aid families who had been poisoned by the city’s water supply and last year, he teamed with Adidas Originals to build a recording studio at Cass Technical High School, his alma mater.

According to Detroit Metro Times, the money will also help students with meal plans, transportation, child care, textbooks, and other school supplies.
