Fayetteville, NC – Colin Kaepernick may be out of a job with the NFL, but that’s not stopping his generous humanitarian efforts.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback donated $34,000 to J. Cole’s Dreamville Foundation, according to reporter Darren Rovell.
Kaepernick also donated $33,000 each to New York’s Lower East Side Girls Club and 100 Suits For 100 Men.

The Dreamville Foundation is based in Cole’s hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina. According to its site, the non-profit organization aims to “bridge the gap” between the worlds of opportunity and the urban youth in the city.
Although the specifics of Kaepernick’s donation weren’t revealed at this time, a statement issued on his behalf said the details will be divulged in the near future.
“Colin will be helping to fund a couple of new projects in development which he is very excited to support,” the statement read. “Colin will be releasing details of the projects in development in the coming weeks.”
Cole has been a longtime supporter of Kaepernick, who famously protested the national anthem by kneeling while it was played during the 2016 NFL season. Many people believe the quarterback has been blackballed from the NFL due to his social activism.
