The 30-year-old has been doing honorable work in the community for some time now. In 2018, he launched the 21 Bank Account Campaign promoting “financial literacy education to underserved youth.” The non-profit’s purpose is to educate the youth with free financial courses about managing money, opening bank accounts and saving for college.

“I’ve been an advocate for financial literacy because I believe it can help free youth to focus on the more important things in life,” 21 Savage said upon launching the intitiative.  

The Leading By Example Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit foundation that 21 created to forefront his philanthropic endeavors in local communities.
