Each of the 20 schools will receive $100,000 over the next three years, according to SocialWorks, while CPS and Ingenuity will provide budgeting and staffing guidance. Those programs include theater, dance, digital arts, ceramics, graphic arts and more.

The schools were chosen based on CPS ratings and how much the schools were affected by budget cuts, the musician said.

The donation is being made by Chance's nonprofit foundation, Social Works.

"Besides, they make damn good chicken, so I hope everyone will come out and eat some peri-peri chicken and help us raise money for SocialWorks". "The kids deserve the arts", said Orr Academy High School Principal Shanele Andrews. She also hopes to fix and replace the school's existing visual arts supplies.

Now, Chance and his team have found a new way to show support for America's educators, announcing a brand new annual awards show, The Twilight Awards, to recognize "teachers, parents, principals, and students that convey leadership" in Chicago-area schools. A second batch of $10,000 donations were given to 12 other schools later that month, when the Chicago Bulls donated $1 million to the musician's campaign. In addition to the $2.2 million, Chance's SocialWorks gave away 30,000 backpacks to students at last month's Bud Billiken Parade. "I'm going to do what I can.' We need more students like this".

"Nando's has a history of supporting public schools and community non-profits when they open new restaurants, which I really admire", Chance said in a press statement.
