Grammy-winning mogul Diddy has made a significant contribution to the Boys and Girls Club, that may have saved the organization in Harlem.
According to a press release, “The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem, an organization dedicated to youth development by providing access and opportunities for young people in their community regardless of economic, social and family circumstances, today announced a remarkable contribution from business magnate Sean Combs, founder of the entertainment conglomerate Bad Boy Entertainment Worldwide.”

The Club was facing major financial set backs due to a decrease in funds from federal, state, and private funding.
“Mr. Combs’ contribution comes at a time when we were faced with the possibility of eliminating existing programs and/or club sites. 100% of Mr. Combs’ contribution will go directly to the young people, and provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs allowing us to move forward as a club, uninterrupted.” said Willie C. Bentley, Jr. Board Member and Resource Development Chair.
