Metro Boomin has donated $100,000 to five St. Louis nonprofit organizations focused on women’s welfare in honor of his late mother.

“I’ve seen firsthand the work that goes into being a single mother. Mine was my inspiration and my hero,” the St. Louis native said in a statement, referring to his mother Leslie Joanne Wayne, who was a domestic violence victim. “It’s very important to me to pay it forward, because I see the same resilience and dedication in the women these organizations work with.”

Metro Boomin, in partnership with Rung for Women and Amazon Access, donated $20,000 each to Almost Home, Diamond Diva Empowerment Foundation, the Haven of Grace, the Little Bit Foundation and Parents as Teachers.

“We are excited to partner with Metro Boomin in his work to lift up single mothers in St. Louis,” said Leslie Gill, the president of Rung for Women, which is the current fiduciary agent for Metro.

The donations will be utilized to help women in need to pay their debt, rent, and other expenses like utilities and childcare.

Metro released two back-to-back albums in collaboration with FutureWe Don’t Trust You and We Still Don’t Trust You – in March and April, respectively.
