Beyoncé’s Foundation Donates $120K To Small Businesses In Atlanta
Beyoncé’s three nights of live shows in the city of Atlanta included some philanthropy as she donated $120,000 to 12 lucky small businesses.
The singer’s BeyGOOD Foundation surprised a dozen metro Atlanta small businesses with $10,000 grants as part of the singer’s Black Parade Route Small Business Impact Luncheon, Fox 5 Atlanta reports.
The event included a special fireside chat with Tyler Perry, who shared words of wisdom and encouragement to the small business owners, along with a special performance by Grammy Award-winning singer Le’Andria Johnson.
“Tears, joy, laughter, excitement filled the jam-packed Atlanta ballroom,” the foundation captioned a recap Instagram post.

The BeyGOOD Foundation has been hard at work with philanthropy efforts amid Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour, which has become the best-selling tour of her career. In addition to the $120K bestowed to Atlanta small businesses, Bey’s foundation has pledged $1 million in financial grants, and another $1 million in scholarships, to 10 different universities.
The Renaissance World Tour is expected to earn the decorated award winner nearly $2.1 billion, according to Forbes. The European leg of the tour earned the “Cuff It” singer $154 million. Stateside, the tour is helping local economies, with Beyoncé’s three nights in Atlanta adding $10 million.
