Megan Thee Stallion is helping put women on top with her latest $1 million campaign with Fashion Nova that she announced on International Women’s Day.
The rapper’s Women on Top philanthropic initiative works to empower women by supporting their education, businesses, charities and organizations with donations, scholarships and grants. Every day throughout the month of March, which is Women’s History Month, Fashion Nova Cares will highlight the female recipients who were pre-selected to receive $25,000 or more, for a total of $1 million. Those interested in applying can head to Fashion Nova Cares’ official website and submit their email address, phone number, Instagram handle and personal story.
“I’m excited to collaborate with Fashion Nova Cares on the Women on Top initiative and be part of giving $1 million to support women led businesses and organizations,” the “Hot Girl” artist said in an official statement. “These donations are life changing and will help women of all ages get one step closer to making their dreams a reality.”
Previously, Megan and her “WAP” collaborator Cardi B teamed up with Cash App and Twitter following their song’s historic No. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 in August to give away $1 million as a way to honor women during the viral conversation about female empowerment following the song’s release. In October, Megan also launched a Don’t Stop Scholarship Fund specifically for women of color pursuing their degree around the time of her single release of the same name featuring Young Thug.
The Grammy-nominated artist clarified to one inquiring Twitter user that her Women on Top fund differed from her Don’t Stop Scholarship fund. She also announced that the YWCA Houston in her hometown (that she recently agreed to help rebuild following the Texas winter freeze) was the first $25,000 recipient of the new fund.
“At Fashion Nova, women empowerment and ongoing advocacy for diversity and inclusion have always been part of our guiding principles,” said Fashion Nova CEO/founder Richard Saghian. “We believe the world will be a better place when all women are provided the opportunity to maximize their potential. This program was created to give women greater advantage as they pursue their passions.”
The Women on Top initiative is part of Fashion Nova’s ongoing pledge to support awareness campaigns committed to fighting racial inequality.
