Beyonce's Charity to Donate Thousands of Dollars to Families Facing Eviction Amid Pandemic

Beyonce is doing even more good.

The 39-year-old Lemonade superstar announced on Tuesday (December 22) that her BeyGOOD charity will start donating $5,000 to 100 individuals and families facing eviction or having difficult paying rent amid the pandemic.

“This holiday season while many are stressed with what they will do next regarding their housing, we are proud to share some GOOD news. Beyonce is giving $5k grants to individuals and families facing foreclosures or evictions,” the charity announced in their press release.

“When we were faced with the pandemic caused by COVID-19, BeyGOOD created a plan to make a difference. We assisted organizations across the country that were providing people with basic needs like food, water, household supplies and COVID testing. We also provided mental health support. We then launched our BeyGOOD Small Business Impact fund and to date over 250 small businesses have received $10k grants. Beyoncé is continuing her heart of support and helping where needed most. Phase Two of the BeyGOOD Impact Fund will now help those impacted by the housing crisis. The housing moratorium is set to end on December 26th, resulting in mortgage foreclosures and rental evictions. Many families are impacted, due to the pandemic that resulted in job loss, sickness and overall economy downturn,” they explained.

Online applications for financial assistance from BeyGOOD open January 7 and each applicant must provide the necessary documentation to the NAACP. 100 recipients will be selected and notified of their grants in late January. A second round of funding will be available in February, the organization added.
