Beyoncé Donates $6M to Coronavirus Relief Through BeyGOOD Initiative



Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD has partnered with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s #startsmall to provide $6 million to various mental health and other health organizations assisting people during the coronavirus pandemic.

The mental health initiative includes a partnership with UCLA. BeyGOOD has also partnered with the National Alliance in Mental Illness, or NAMI, to help provide local support in Houston, New York, New Orleans and Detroit.



BeyGOOD is also supporting United Memorial Center, Bread of Life, Matthew 25 and other organizations to help provide basic needs such as food, water, cleaning supplies, medicines and face masks.

BeyGood released a statement on Beyoncé’s website:

“Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD recognizes the immense mental and personal health burdens being placed on essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In our major cities, African-Americans comprise a disproportionate number of workers in these indispensable occupations, and they will need mental health support and personal wellness care, including testing and medical services, food supplies and food deliveries, both during and after the crisis.”
