Jay Z is giving back.

The hip-hop mogul’s Shawn Carter Foundation is teaming up with eBay for Charity on a new fundraising campaign, which will run from May 15-24, with all proceeds going towards the foundation’s educational programs and scholarship fund, according to Billboard.

Starting today, fans can bid on a variety special experiences like VIP Made in America passes, a VIP concert package for an upcoming Bruno Mars concert, a Big Sean Puma photo shoot, or a coveted Champagne Armand de Brignac Luxury At-Home Service Package, among others.

On the memorabilia side, fans can now bid on Nick Jonas’ signed Fender guitar, a DNCE signed Fender guitar, or a Demi Lovato signed concert-worn outfit and signed photograph.

Aside from special experiences and memorabilia, supporters can also donate directly to the Shawn Carter Foundation for a chance to win a VIP Day at Roc Nation headquarters. Donations can range from $10 to $100.

Gloria Carter, Jay Z’s mother and the co-founder his foundation, spoke on what the auction means to the non-prit company. “Our goal is to touch as many people as we possibly can,” she explained. “There are so many young people — a lot whom are first-generation students — that have the desire to attend college but don’t have the funds. My mother and father taught us to pay it forward and give to the community. That was my inspiration for the foundation. It makes me feel so blessed to be put in a situation where I can help the next generation.”

Jay Z has many reasons to celebrate. Outside his charitable efforts, the rap icon recently signed a reported $200 million Live Nation touring deal after being named one this year’s Forbes Five.

Bidding has already started on eBay.
