This is fantastic news!
Chase and will.i.am announced today an unprecedented collaboration focused on transforming the East Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. The partnership will focus on providing multiple social services that address Boyle Heights’ particular needs including education, jobs and job training, health, home ownership and green space.
The TRANS4M Boyle Heights collaboration is being built upon a $1 million grant from Chase to the i.am angel foundation, a charity established by will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas. In addition, Chase will commit, directly and through the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, at least $7 million over the next three years to their other non-profit partners to help TRANS4M Boyle Heights.
“Boyle Heights is where it all began for me,” said will.i.am. “My foundation is focused on education, opportunity and inspiration. This gift from Chase, plus Chase’s larger commitment will help provide the community of Boyle Heights with all these things and more.”
