The NFLPA said it will make a $10,000 contribution to Kaepernick's foundation or a charity of his choice along with an in-kind donation to him.
On Sept. 7, Kaepernick announced $100,000 in donations to DREAM, Coalition for the Homeless, The Gathering for Justice's War on Children, and United We Dream charities. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback followed those donations with backpack giveaways as well.
In 2016, Kaepernick vowed to donate $1 million to organizations in oppressed communities. To date, the NFLPA said he's contributed $900,000 toward his goal.
"I’ve been very blessed to be in this position and make the kind of money I do, and I have to help these people," Kaepernick said in September 2016. "I have to help these communities. It’s not right that they’re not put in the position to succeed, or given the opportunities to succeed."
