Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving paid off the college tuition of nine students from an HBCU (Lincoln University) on Dec. 10 as part of his foundation’s 11 days of giving in December, according to Shams Charania.
It’s unclear how much Irving spent to pay off tuition for those students. Irving has spent much of 2020 donating money to help others. In July, Irving pledged $1.5 million to WNBA players who opted out of the 2020 WNBA season. He also donated $323,000 to Feeding America, and $200,000 to the Food Bank in New York.
