Kanye West made a massive donation to ensure his Chicago arts institution, Donda's House, would remain open. West reportedly donated $133,000 of the proceeds from his Louis Vuitton Foundation concert series to the youth program, which lost state funding this year. West launched Donda's House in honor of his late mother, Dr. Donda West. It offers a 12-week program of creative writing, recording and wellness education to artists between 14-24 years-old in Chicago. [Huffington Post]
