Travis Scott News: Music Artist Pledges $5 Million for "Project HEAL"

Travis Scott has announced the launch of "Project HEAL," his new charity initiative, months after the tragedy at the Astroworld Festival.

The musician explained that the project would advocate academics, creatives, music fans, and concertgoers in an Instagram post. An initial donation of $5 million has been made.

It has been a long-term succession of philanthropic and investment activities that have resulted in this project. The program begins today with a one-million-dollar scholarship fund for students attending historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) (HBCUs).

The Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund, which Scott supports, will award $10,000 grants to seniors with at least 3.5 GPAs who are at risk of dropping out of school due to financial hardship. It is stated in the press release that the scholarship will assist 100 students in completing their studies and earning certificates.

Dr. Janice Beal's Project Heal has ambitious plans for the future, including handling the mental health crisis using digital counseling and providing hotlines.

It also plans to fund Scott's CACT.US Youth Design Center at TXRX Labs in Houston, a nonprofit coworking space for aspiring artists, designers, and tech innovators. The initiative will also fund the previously announced U.S. Conference of Mayors Task Force on Event Safety as well as a tech-driven device that will discuss safety at large-scale live events, according to the press release.

Travis Scott will make a donation to the United States Conference of Mayors Task Force on Event Safety in response to the events that transpired at the Astroworld Festival.

A full report of recommendations will be produced as part of the gift, advocating for maximum safety at large-scale events while also funding absolute safety.
