Kanye West started nonprofit in memory of his accomplished mother; since opening in 2013, Donda's House has helped 100 Chicago teens study the arts.
"Kanye West's beloved mother, Donda West, may have died in 2007, but her spirit has inspired a nonprofit that's giving young people in Chicago the arts education they deserve. Donda's House officially opened its doors in August 2013, 'but the idea of Donda's House came about in December 2011,' the nonprofit's co-founder and executive director, Donnie Smith, tells PEOPLE." -- Tara Fowler, People
