MusiCares, which operates under the Recording Academy, has set up the Mac Miller Legacy Fund to help young musicians dealing with substance abuse.
The Mac Miller Fund, established by the late rapper's family after his death, donated $50,000 to MusiCares to help establish the Legacy Fund. The fund was announced at MusiCare's annual Concert for Recovery by Miller's good friend Vince Staples.
The MusiCares Mac Miller Legacy Fund will provide support to members of the music community under the age of 27 who are fighting addiction.
Another $50,000 was donated by the Mac Miller Fund to Hope Academy of Music and the Arts in Pittsburgh.
