Recording Artist Prince Donates $250k to Nonprofit.


COLUMBIA, S.C. — Recording artist Prince makes a $250,000 donation to a nonprofit group that aims to make sure all children in a Columbia University neighborhood graduate from college.

Prince’s drummer and Columbia-area native John Blackwell Jr. made the announcement on Tuesday, 4/4/11, to Eau Claire Promise Zone officials.

The 501c3 Eau Claire Promise Zone is a 12-neighborhood area that is part of the nationwide “Promise Neighborhoods” movement, modeled after the initiatives of Geoffrey Canada and his Harlem Children’s Zone.
