The Colin Kaepernick Foundation, the charitable organization started by the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, has announced donations totaling $100,000 to multiple charities. 

Per USA Today's Tom Pelissero, Kaepernick's foundation pledged donations to Life After Hate, Inc., Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle and Silence is Violence.

Last year, in the wake of Kaepernick's protests during the playing of the national anthem before 49ers games, he announced he would be donating $1 million to various charitable organizations and communities.

Per Pelissero, this latest round of donations brings Kaepernick and his foundation 60 percent of the way to that $1 million pledge. 

In an Instagram post last November, Kaepernick noted he would be donating $100,000 per month for 10 months to reach the $1 million goal. His first donations were in October and have continued in the ensuing months.
