The news comes weeks after Chance, real name Chancelor Bennett, pledged to donate $1 million to Chicago Public Schools after having a disappointing meeting with IL governor Bruce Rauner about the state's education funding. After the unproductive dialogue, Chance took matters into his own hands and announced he was making a donation of $1 million dollars to benefit Chicago public schools.
For the Bulls, it's all about giving back to a public school infrastructure that's lagging behind others in terms of educational attainment. Each school is receiving $10,000 donations from Chance's fund; 10 have already recieved $10,000.
A native of Chicago, Chance has used his platform to speak out about the issues facing the city. "Students have lost valuable teachers, supplies, access to after school and enrichment programs, especially in the arts and special needs programs. The fund will bring arts program and materials to schools that have experienced a decrease in five-year graduation rates, experienced budget cuts and lack of text books, and are without music or arts programs".

Chance and Social Works will continue to raise funds for arts programming for CPS under what he calls, The New Chance Arts and Literature Fund that will begin for the 2017-2018 school year. Chance's non-profit will be matching $100,000 donations from wealthy donors with additional contributions of $10,000. Today he said he has not been in contact with Rauner since then.
"We all individually play roles in the betterment of the kids in Chicago... we can all get really involved here", Chance stated before once again urging individuals to make donations that will help the city's underserved youth.
