About the Dr. Donda West Foundation

In 2008, Kanye West changed the name of his foundation to the Dr. Donda West foundation, as a permanent tribute to her extraordinary legacy and passion for education and children throughout the world.The mission of the Dr. Donda West Foundation, is to help combat the severe dropout problem in schools across the United States by partnering with community organizations to provide underserved youth access to music production programs that will enable them to unleash their creative ability and reach their full potential. Kanye's vision, and thus the vision of the Dr. Donda West Foundation, is its inaugural program, "Loop Dreams", a music production program designed to motivate students to stay in school and graduate. Dr. Donda West Foundation is committed to providing high quality programs in partnership with community organizations such as Challengers Boys & Girls Club in South Central Los Angeles, California where Loop Dreams is currently implemented.  

The vision of the foundation is broad and not easy to attain but understanding the critical role education plays in the success of our youth, and how illiteracy impacts us all, we are committed to the ongoing development of this program across the county and envision a day when the high school dropout rate in cities across this nation will be virtually non-existent. It is Kanye’s belief and the belief of every member of our team that the opportunity to participate in the arts, especially our signature program Loop Dreams will motivate today’s high school students to stay in school and graduate.
