Charlamagne Tha God, popular radio personality and one of the hosts of the Breakfast Club, has announced this past Sunday, October 20th, that he is donating $250,000 to South Carolina State University. The donation will go towards The Ford Family Endowed Scholarship Fund, a charity that provides scholarships to black women who major in English, Communications or are entering the mental health field.
Charlamagne said that the inspiration for the scholarship fund comes from the combination of his mom who is an SCSU alumni, his profession and his passion for advocating mental health awareness.
Charlamagne capped off the announcement over the weekend with an Instagram post saying, “Always remember investing in an HBCU is investing in the future of our people.”
