Details on Colin Kaepernick Giving $1 Million to Support Community Activism & Racial Equality

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Colin Kaepernick is putting his money where his mouth is—literally. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback promised to donate $1 million to charities that support his call for racial equality in the United States.

I plan to take it a step further,” Kaepernick said afterward in a packed interview room that included 20 national news reporters. “I’m currently working with organizations to be involved and making sure I’m actively in these communities, as well as donating the first million dollars I make this to different organization to help these communities and help these people.”

Kaepernick told reporters that he’s still in discussions with multiple organization, but will have plenty to offer since he’s guaranteed to earn $11.9 million in base salary this season even if the 49ers cut him.

Kaepernick said he wants to remain with the team that drafted him in 2011.

“This is a phenomenal organization,” Kaepernick said. “I’ve had great conversations here. I’ve had great memories here. This team has given me the opportunity to become the man I am today. I’m grateful for that, I’m thankful for that. And San Francisco has become my home.”

Kaepernick was booed loudly during San Diego’s Salute to Military night at Qualcomm Stadium, but he reiterated that his protest has nothing to do with his feelings toward the military.
