For will.i.am, philanthropy is a top priority in everything that he does. His i.am.angel foundation has partnered with both the California Endowment and College Track to help TRANS4M the youth community Boyle Heights, a neighborhood where will.i.am grew up. The foundation also selects recipients for the i.am scholarship, a program which has given over $500,000 in financial aid to college students. Additionally, in response to the foreclosure crisis, the foundation has launched the i.am home program which works to improve financial literacy and provides grants to help qualifying struggling families. The program has provided over $400,000 to date in home owner assistance grants.
