Making the announcement via his social media, Porter Robinson shared the launch of The Robinson Malawi Fund.
Started in conjunction with the University of North Carolina, the fund will work towards building resources for children with Burkitt lymphoma in Malawi, East Africa.
The first edition of Robinson's Second Sky festival, which takes place next weekend and features Cashmere Cat, G Jones and Chrome Sparks, hopes to raise $50,000 for the fund.
Robinson recently teased new music is in the works, which would be the release of his first original material since 2014.
