Charlamagne Tha God Gifts South Carolina State University With $250,000
Charlamagne Tha God took the time during homecoming season to give back to historically black college in his home state of South Carolina. The unfiltered radio host gifted South Carolina State University with a a $250,000 check to start a scholarship fund named after his mother, who also attended South Carolina State.
The Ford Family Endowed Scholarship Fund was established to provide scholarships to women majoring in English, Communications or anything mental health related. Since Ms. Ford was an English major and Charlamagne is a radio host, it’s only right that they he focus in those two subjects. He is also passionate about mental health and has been open about managing his anxiety and addressing his childhood trauma.
“Today was South Carolina State’s homecoming and I had the honor of announcing “The Ford Family Endowed Scholarship Fund” named after my mother and my grandmother’s maiden names,” the Breakfast Club host wrote on Instagram. “We will be providing scholarships to black women in South Carolina who Major in English, (my mother’s major) Communications, (because I’m a Radio/TV Guy), and for any sister that wants to be a mental health professional.”
Charlamagne also encouraged others to donate to historically black colleges and universities.
“Always remember investing in an HBCU is investing in the future of our people so the next time an HBCU asks for money, open that wallet.”
