Beyonce’s charity is donating $500,000 to those who could lose their home during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Crazy In Love hitmaker’s charity outfit, BeyGOOD, have announced they will be giving out grants of $5,000 to 100 people who are risk of eviction owing to the current health crisis.

According to her official website, “Phase Two of the BeyGOOD Impact Fund will now help those impacted by the housing crisis. The housing moratorium is set to end on December 26th, resulting in mortgage foreclosures and rental evictions. Many families are impacted, due to the pandemic that resulted in job loss, sickness and overall economic downturn.

BeyGOOD have already been supporting black-owned small businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic as well as donating $6 million to mental health wellness.

Speaking about the support they have provided since the start of the pandemic, they added: “When we were faced with the pandemic caused by COVID-19, BeyGOOD created a plan to make a difference. We assisted organisations across the country that were providing people with basic needs like food, water, household supplies and COVID testing. We also provided mental health support. We then launched our BeyGOOD Small Business Impact fund and to date over 250 small businesses have received $10k grants. Beyoncé is continuing her heart of support and helping where needed most.”
