Jack Harlow launches his own foundation

Louisville rapper Jack Harlow is giving to his local community in Kentucky by launching The Jack Harlow Foundation.

Harlow plans for the charity to “reinvest, uplift and support organizations aiming to make the city that raised him a better place.” He has already donated to four charities close to his heart, which are Adelante Hispanic Achievers, Centro Latino, Russell: A Place of Promise and Sponsor4Success.

In a statement, the rapper said: “The launch of my foundation is represented by gifts to four organizations that I believe are doing the work of making Louisville a better place; helping under resourced families remove obstacles to higher education, supporting a new start in a neighbourhood that has been lacking investment, giving hands on assistance to the poorest of the poor, and making safe housing affordable for families,” he said.

Harlow added: “With all I have done and will do in my career, my home is where my heart is, my refuge, and the place that shaped me. Giving back to Louisville represents the dream I have of making a difference. My vision is to make Louisville a better place. Know that this is just the start of my philanthropic legacy, and I look forward to transforming our community and, as a result, the success and happiness of its citizens.”

The announcement comes shortly after Harlow released his surprise new album Jackman on April 28th. The LP is Harlow’s third full-length project, and serves as the follow-up to his Grammy-nominated 2022 release Come Home The Kids Miss You.
