Meek Mill, Kevin Hart and Michael Rubin have teamed up again to make a major donation to Philadelphia schools. Following up their 2022 donation of $15 million to more than 100 Philly schools, the trio will donate $7 million to local education causes for the 2023-2024 school year, with most of the funds going to support scholarships for low-income students at private schools.
At press time, a spokesperson for the trio had not disclosed which schools will receive the funds, but said the scholarships will be concentrated in the South and North Philadelphia neighborhoods where the rapper and comedian grew up.
In addition to the scholarships to 60 “private and parochial schools in need” for children from low-to-moderate incomes, the donations will also help fund laptops, tablets and WiFi connections and other classroom materials. Interested families have to provide proof of income and demographics showing that they are eligible to receive funding through the Earned Income Tax Credit program.
Meek took to Twitter to share the news.
