French Montana Donates $1 Million to Entertainers 4 Education Alliance
Rapper, producer and frequent pop collaborator French Montana has proven himself to be one of 2015's most charitable celebrities in light of his recent decision to donate $1 million dollars to the Entertainers 4 Education Alliance's I WILL GRADUATE campaign, Billboard reports.
After his label boss, AKA Sean "Diddy" Combs, gifted him the $1 million as a Christmas bonus to reward the rapper for his hard work in 2015, French Montana decided to spread the Christmas spirit by donating the check in full to E4EA.
Upon making the donation, French Montana posted a celebratory group shot to his Instagram with a shout out to Diddy.
French Montana recently made another contribution to the E4EA's I WILL GRADUATE campaign in the form of 100 pairs of Reebok brand sneakers. The organization's co-founder and executive director Tonya Lewis Taylor later thanked French Montana for his donation via Twitter, celebrating him for being "a man of his word":
E4EA is a Bronx-based organization that, according to their website, "utilizes the power of celebrities, musicians, sports figures, high profile individuals and entertainment to promote positive messages to young people about the importance of education, personal advancement and social commitment." The I WILL GRADUATE campaign is a "dropout prevention campaign and call to action for students, parents, and the entire community to increase educational achievement in our youth."
