Nicki Minaj will soon be expanding her philanthropic reach by establishing an official charity that will aid college students with their loans and tuition needs. This adds to her gesture when she offered to pay off the loans and tuition of a handful of fans via Twitter.

Last weekend, the Queens superstar posted to her nearly 21 million followers on Twitter, asking students with straight As to show their grades and she’d give them funds to go towards their education. When fans began chiming in, Minaj quickly realized this could be a much bigger endeavor than she thought, and she promised to do another giveaway fairly soon.
Someone on Minaj’s financial team must have seen the potential for huge tax write-offs, and now this will become an ongoing act of kindness. Minaj posted to Instagram the names of some students she’s already given thousands to so far with the following message:
“This makes me so happy. [A few from the other day] I’ll do another impromptu payment spree in a month or 2 but pls know that I’m launching my official charity for Student Loans/Tuition Payments VERY SOON! You’ll be able to officially sign up! I’ll keep you posted!”
