Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs Donates $1 Million To Fund Charter School In The Bronx

Whether you know him as Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Brother Love or Puffy, there’s one word everyone can agree about to describe hip-hop icon Sean Combs: generous.

That’s the term that springs to mind with the news that the rapper/producer/music mogul is making a million-dollar donation to fund a new charter school in The Bronx.

As Associated Press reports the lead judge on the Fox music competition “The Four” is pledging $1 million to Capital Preparatory Schools toward the opening of a new school, set to open in September 2019.

According to the announcement on Tuesday, the school will initially teach 160 6th- and 7th-graders, with a goal of expanding enrolment to 650 students in grades 6 through 11 over a 5-year period.

“I came from the same environment these kids live in every day,” said the longtime education advocate in a statement.

“I understand the importance of access to a great education, and the critical role it plays in a child’s future,” Combs added. “Our school provides historically disadvantaged students with the college and career skills needed to become responsible and engaged citizens for social justice.”
