The Mac Miller Circles Fund charity has reportedly raised over $700,000 already since its start in September.

The charity was originally set up after Mac Miller died from an accidental overdose back in September 2018.

The Mac Miller Circles Fund aims to provide "programming, resources and opportunities to youth from underserved communities, helping them recognize their full potential through exploration in the arts and community building."

According to TMZ, since the fund was launched in September, the charity has managed to raise over $700,000, split between donations and the tribute concert held back in October 2018.

Artists such as Anderson .Paak, Chance The Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, J.I.D, John Mayer, Schoolboy Q, SZA, Thundercat, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, and more came together in October to perform a tribute concert celebrating the life of Mac Miller.

The split is around half and half, with donations reportedly gathering up to $350,000, and the tribute concert collecting another $350,000.

Mac Miller's 2019 Grammy-nominated album Swimming is out now. Find out more on The Mac Miller Circles Fund.
