NEW YORK (AP) — Lady Gaga is launching a foundation with the help of the MacArthur Foundation and Harvard University.
The Grammy-winning singer announced Wednesday she is launching the Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit focusing on youth empowerment and “issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development.”
Gaga’s partners include the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.
The foundation will be directed by the 25-year-old singer and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta.
“Together we hope to establish a standard of Bravery and Kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment,” Gaga said. Published in The Messenger 11.3.11
