Big Sean is giving back once again. 

The Detroit rapper has donated $25,000 to Wayne State University's HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) program through his organization, the Sean Anderson Foundation. The money will be used to establish an endowment to provide some support to Wayne State students experiencing homelessness or in situations where housing is in jeopardy.

According to Detroit Metro Times, the money will also help students with meal plans, transportation, child care, textbooks, and other school supplies. 

Jacqueline Wilson, Wayne State's First Lady, stated, "The Sean Anderson Foundation’s investment in the HIGH Program shows their commitment to assisting those in need. With this gift, we will be able to help Wayne State students who are experiencing homelessness work toward a brighter future."
