Kanye West Charity Scam Exposed?


Kanye West on the hot seat after raising over $1 million for the Kanye West foundation and only giving away a tiny fraction of the amount...

According to The Business Insider the Kanye West foundation raised $1.9 million between 2008 and 2010 but only provided $7,695 in grants, contributions and donations.

The rest went on salaries and overhead.

The Kanye West Foundation was created to combat the severe dropout problem in schools across the United States by providing under-served youth access to music production programs.

The foundation is currently being dissolved.

That's what happens when you arent actually INVOLVED in the charity of your namesake. Folks will take that money and RUN!! I honestly dont think he stole it. I think he was focusing on his fashion career and got Got. Oh well....

Fwiw , the story from Business Insider is from 2012.No excuses for not making more meaningful donations -but this is an old story.

I fee like they are running a hit job on this man. We haven't seen him in weeks, he's supposedly deleting his social media accounts, old news stories being ran... something is not right with all of this.
