Kanye West is making sure that George Floyd's 6-year-old daughter, Gianna, will have an education.

The rapper has set up a college savings fund for Gianna to fully cover her tuition, Kanye's rep confirmed to TMZ on Thursday.

In addition, Kanye is also stepping up to the plate to assist the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, making separate donations to cover their legal costs. Both Ahmaud and Breonna were recently killed — he was shot and killed while jogging in Georgia, having allegedly been chased by three men (one of which was a former cop) who accused him of burglary; Breonna was killed in Kentucky in her own home by police after officers busted in without warning in a "no-knock warrant" case.

Kanye's rep said he's also opening up his wallet to help out several black-owned businesses that were victims of looting in his hometown of Chicago, which occurred during continuing demonstrations and protests against police brutality.

Thus far, Kanye has donated $2 million to multiple causes, TMZ reported, citing his rep.

Of course, Chicago is hardly the lone city dealing with unrest. George Floyd's death, which was caught on video, has sparked worldwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism.

George died in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25 after a white police officer pinned him to the ground for several minutes by kneeling on his neck, even though George repeatedly made it clear he couldn't breathe. That officer and three others have now been charged in the death.
