Colin Kaepernick Donates $800K To Communities

Colin Kaepernick continues his philanthropic mission by donating $800,000 to oppressed communities.

This time last year, Colin Kaepernick stated he would donate $1 million “to organizations working in oppressed communities.” To be specific, Kaepernick is  targeting people affected by the injustices against which he protested by sitting and kneeling during the national anthem throughout the 2016 NFL season.

Beginning last October, Kaepernick has donated funds in $100,000 increments to multiple organizations — detailed on his website. Per his Instagram account, his donation total has currently reached $800,000.

In addition to this most recent donation, he has also given money to groups such as Meals on Wheels, Center for Reproductive Rights, Black Veterans for Social Justice, SilenceIsViolence and various others.
