- Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour kicked off in May and is scheduled to hit 33 cities.
- The tour's official jeweler, Tiffany and Co., announced a limited-edition collection that will benefit HBCUs.
- All sales of the collection will benefit the About Love Scholarship program, which awards scholarships to students pursuing a degree in the arts, history, and communications at five HBCUs.
In celebration of Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour, Tiffany and Co. is launching a limited-edition collection benefiting the About Love Scholarship program, a partnership between the brand, Beyoncé's BeyGOOD Foundation, and the Shawn Carter Foundation, founded by Beyoncé's husband, rap superstar and record producer Jay-Z, and his mother, Gloria Carter.
One hundred percent of profits from the sales of the collection will be donated to the scholarship program, which benefits students pursuing a degree in the arts, history, and communications at five historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), according to Tiffany and Co.
The institutions include:
- Lincoln University in Pennsylvania
- Norfolk State University in Virginia
- Bennett College in North Carolina
- University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff
- Central State University in Ohio
All donations will build upon the $2 million commitment to the scholarship program in 2021, which has benefited over 100 students since the program's inception, according to Tiffany and Co.
The limited-edition collection launched July 29 and was "designed in partnership with Beyoncé," according to Tiffany and Co., featuring iconography of the tour.
Additionally, Tiffany and Co. is the official jeweler for the Renaissance World Tour, outfitting Beyoncé with custom jewelry and outfits at each tour stop.
"From Sweden to the States, acclaimed artist Beyoncé will perform in custom designs inspired by The Tiffany Archives and the House's signature collections, as well as bespoke Tiffany creations," its website reads.
This is Beyoncé's latest move to support students pursuing higher education through her Renaissance World Tour. Earlier this year, the BeyGOOD Foundation announced it would give $100,000 each to 10 colleges in cities on her tour. So far, seven schools have been announced, and BeyGood's website is hinting that the next school will be in Washington, D.C., where she will be performing Aug. 5 and 6.
