In addition to funding scholarships, the program also works with other local charities to help fundraise and raise awareness for local causes. Her charity has also promised to help UNICEF provide clean water to the country of Burundi.
The Shawn Carter Foundation was founded as a public charity in 2003 by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and his mother, Gloria Carter.
