Back in September 2016, Kaepernick promised that he would donate $1 million to charities that are actively supporting oppressed communities. So far he has stuck to his promise and has spread $100,000 across diffrent organizations each month.

Kaepernick has given $900,000 to 31 charities, so far such as J. Cole’s Dreamville Foundation, Meals on Wheels, Lower East Side Girls Club, Somalia Famine Relief and many more. He shared on Instagram earlier today that he will announce his final $100,000 donation to complete the $1 million total on Wednesday.

“I’m proud to say that as part of my Million Dollar Pledge, I’ve donated $900,000 to 31 organizations fighting toward social justice. Its been a privilege to be able to do my part in helping organizations like Mother’s Against Police Brutality to provide comfort and support for families when law enforcement kills a community member, Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure to provide furniture to single mothers and Meals on Wheels who feed those less fortunate – just to highlight a few. Hearing about how each organization utilized the donations reaffirms that people doing good work need more support.”

He continued,

“As we welcome 2018, we also see that our work is not done. Tomorrow, I’ll be announcing the final $100,000 to complete my Million Dollar Pledge. I’m excited to share this last round of donations with all of you. You can see all 31 donations I’ve made so far and what they used the money for on http://www.kaepernick7.com #MillionDollarPledge #10for10”
