Mac Miller Fund Grants $100,000 to Music Program for Pittsburgh Teens

About the donation for the Homewood-Brushton YMCA, the 'Self Care' rapper's family explains they will continue to do his work in making the world a kinder place.

AceShowbiz - The Mac Miller Circles Fund has donated $100,000 (£74,571) to a Pittsburgh-based music program for teenagers.

The donation will be given to the Homewood-Brushton YMCA in the late rapper's hometown, helping fund its partnership with the nonprofit Tuff Sound Apprenticeship Program - which trains young adults on becoming sound engineers.

In a statement announcing the donation, Miller's family said, "He cared very much about working to make the world a kinder place and we will continue to do just that."

The fund was created last year and has raised nearly $1 million (£745,705) in the "Self Care" star's honor. It aims to help finance art programs for young people in underserved communities, and provide assistance for young artists struggling with addition.

Miller, who dated Ariana Grande before his passing, died from an accidental drug overdose in September 2018, aged 26.
