Kanye West has made the biggest donation in the short history of Donda's House.

Kanye West co-founded Donda's House as a means to both commemorate his mother after her passing, and to give back to his beloved city of Chicago. Since 2013, the charity has helped 160 youths in the area, and now, thanks to Kanye's recent record donation of $133,000, it should be able to aid many more.

The sum reportedly includes a portion of the money Ye earned at his performances from the Louis Vuitton Foundation shows in Paris. 

“Kanye’s generosity is greatly appreciated and will improve our capacity with new staff as we deliver the high-quality arts programming that our participants deserve," Executive Director Donnie Smith wrote in a press release. 

Fellow rapper and creative director of the organization, Rhymefest, also commented on the donation. "This is a great honor and a true tribute to his mother’s legacy, who did so much for young artists," he said.

You can have a look at the programs offered by the charity, and make a donation at their official website.
