For the second year in a row, Chance the Rapper’s nonprofit, SocialWorks, teamed up with Lyft for the Round Up & Donate campaign. The rapper announced this month that customers of the on-demand car service could donate to Chicago Public Schools (CPS) by rounding up their fares to the nearest dollar.

“Back to school is here, Chicago! I’m teaming up with @lyft to encourage everyone to Round UP & Donate,” Chance wrote. “Lyft has pledged to match all rider donations throughout September.”

Through the partnership, money will be donated to The New Chance Arts and Literature Fund, an initiative focused on arts enrichment education. Riders also have the option to contribute to other nonprofits, including the ACLU Foundation, Black Girls Code and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

SocialWorks launched in 2016, according to its website; the foundation raised $2.2 million for CPS.
