Big Sean is taking matters into his own hands against the fight against college homelessness in Detroit.

The G.O.O.D. music star has donated $25,000 to establish aptitude with Wayne State University's HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program. 'H.I.G.H.' is set to assist "financially stressed students at Wayne State University reach their goal to graduate."

The funding goes towards needed resources, housing support, textbooks, school supplies, clothing, transportation, and child-care assistance.

Big Sean's $25K donation is specifically designated for college homelessness.

“We see the HIGH Program as an important component of ensuring success at Wayne State, and we are proud to help strengthen its mission,” Myra Anderson, president of the foundation/Big Sean’s mother, said in a statement to Daily Detroit. “We aim to boost graduation rates at the university by providing support to students facing hardship.”

Being no stranger to helping those in need, Big Sean created the #HealFlintsKids fundraiser which amassed over a whopping $50K for those effected by the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
