Kanye West Foundation Closes After 4 Years

Kanye West Foundation Closes After 4 Years

Kanye West arrives at Heathrow airport on Wednesday (April 20) in London, England.

The 33-year-old rapper performed at Coachella over the weekend and headed overseas afterward.

Earlier in the week, it was announced that the Kanye West Foundation, which was intended to reduce high school dropout rates, has closed.

“I am reaching out to let you know that the Kanye West Foundation has officially closed it[s] doors after a successful 4+ years of programming and events,” former executive director Joseph Collins wrote in an email (via NYTimes).

“It has been an incredible experience working with Kanye and the board to realize his mother’s vision and I am honored to have been given the opportunity to lead the Foundation,” Joseph continued.

FYI: Kanye is wearing friendship bracelets by Burkman Bros.

    If it was a successful experience, why does he stop it? If you want to realize someone’s vision, you do it the rest of your life, in my opinion, not just a few years to give you ‘clear conscience’.

    @karih: I agree, it was most likely for tax purposes.

    When is he going to come out? I guess he doesn’t need to bother we’ve all figured it out by now. Like Jay-Z and 50 Cent. The public know.

    What’s the reason it had to stop? That seems like a real worthy cause – why quit the efforts?

    Anyone else find it ironic that he’s dropping out of a project thats supposed to prevent people from dropping out of school…

    The New York Times reported that his charity averaged $490,000 in donations and paid about $18,000 in charitable funding, which is another way of saying he is a total greed head, rip-off and fraud.
