It has been almost a year since Chance the Rapper officially started his nonprofit organization Social Works in Chicago. Since then, he has already done so much.

Today the organization held its first summit at the Harold Washington Cultural Center. There he, “dressed as Steve Jobs,” as he kept the promise he made in March to donate more than $1 million to Chicago Public Schools.

During his talk he also shouted out a bunch of principals that he felt were truly making an impact at their schools. In total he will be donating to 20 Chicago schools.

Each one of the schools will receive $100,000 over the next 3 years from the Chance’s Arts and Literature Fund. The schools who will benifit are:
