Kanye West continues to give back to the city of Chicago, and most notably to the Donda's House community organization, which he co-founded in 2013 in honor of his late mother. Recently, 'Ye actually made the biggest contribution in the organization's short history when he donated $133,000 to the foundation, with a portion of that coming from the proceeds of his recent Louis Vuitton Foundation shows in Paris. 

“Kanye’s generosity is greatly appreciated and will improve our capacity with new staff as we deliver the high-quality arts programming that our participants deserve," Executive Director of Donda's House Donnie Smith said in the press release. Since its launch, Donda's House has already been able to help the lives of 160 Chicago youths, and that will only be able to increase with Ye's record donation. "This is a great honor and a true tribute to his mother’s legacy, who did so much for young artists," Che "Rhymefest" Smith said.
