In 2022, the trio donated $15 million to over 100 Philly schools. On Tuesday, they will contribute $7 million to local education causes for the 2023-2024 school year. A large sum of the funds will support scholarships for low-income South and North Philadelphia students.
On top of the scholarships provided to 60 “private and parochial schools in need” for Philly students, it will also help fund laptops, tablets, Wi-Fi connections in schools and other classroom necessities.
Families interested in enrolling their children have to provide proof of income and demographics showing that they are eligible to receive funding through the Earned Income Tax Credit program.
Over the past few years, Meek and Rubin have donated more than $17 million to local communities. They previously launched a $2 million scholarship fund to help area students during the pandemic.
Meek confirmed the news after retweeting the story,
“Gotta get the whole trap booming too … we come from public schools side!!!!!” he said.
A spokesperson for the brand has yet to disclose which Philly schools will receive the funds.
Rubin also has helped Philly families by feeding low-income families during the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic with his “All In Challenge.”
