Travis Scott Launches ‘Project Heal’ To Aid Community Initiatives – Travis donates $5 million to charity.
Travis Scott has just announced his latest effort to help people in various communities through a new organization called “Project HEAL.”
Travis is said to have contributed a total of $5 million to the causes that “Project HEAL” will support, according to TMZ.
“A multi-tier project dedicated to tackling difficulties facing today’s kids, particularly those from marginalized and at-risk groups,” according to the organization’s description.
Scholarships for HBCU students, mental health resources, a CACT.US Youth Design Center expansion, and support for the US Conference of Mayors Task Force on Event Safety will all benefit from the project’s funding.
Travis’ Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund will provide scholarships to HBCU students. They will award a total of $1 million to seniors who are enrolled at HBCUs and have a GPA of at least 3.5.
Travis intends to expand the CACT.US Youth Design Center in Houston, Texas, through his Catcus Jack Foundation. Various middle school and high school pupils, dubbed the “next generation of innovators and inventors,” have already benefited from the facility.
As Travis lends his support, Dr. Janice Beal, a Houston-based behavioral health expert, will lead Travis’ donation toward mental health resources.
The donation to the Task Force on Event Safety of the United States Conference of Mayors will also target event safety during large live events.
“This initiative will bring all of the necessary stakeholders from government, public safety, emergency response, health care, event management, music, and technology together,” according to the project’s website.
It will be the first time that all of these organizations and individuals collaborate to address the safety issues that future large-scale events will confront.”
Travis’ announcement of “Project HEAL” comes after the fatalities at his Astroworld Festival in November sparked outrage and a slew of lawsuits.
