Grants to Donda's House
2016 (Inactive Grant)
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Donda’s House provides programming that combines creative arts such as music and fashion with business development, marketing skills, and event planning to young adults on the south side of Chicago. Many of the people it serves are deeply impacted by the City of Chicago’s ongoing troubles related to police accountability and gun violence. Donda’s House is serving as a convener of the first in what is expected to be a series of community-wide conversations aimed at beginning a healing process for Chicago’s citizens, many of whom have experienced trauma as a result of violence. Award funds support small group convenings, stipends for therapists, documentation, staffing, and communications activities.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Donda's House $50,000 between 1978 and 2017.
