Kanye West Set Up A College Fund For George Floyd’s 6-Year-Old Daughter

He's also giving financial support to the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

Kanye West has announced he plans to fully cover college tuition for Gianna Floyd, the daughter of George Floyd, ensuring her access to higher education when the time comes.

A representative for West told CNN that the 529 education plan West is establishing for 6-year-old Gianna is part of a $2 million donation that includes legal funds for the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor as well as funding for black-owned businesses in crisis in Chicago, West’s home town, and other cities.

The death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd while in police custody has sparked protests and marches around the country — and the world — calling for racial equality and justice.

And this week, a heartbreaking moment was captured on video while Gianna was at one of the protests. In the short clip posted to Instagram by @Skrptz, Gianna is seen sitting on the shoulders of her father’s friend, former NBA player Stephen Jackson, saying, “Daddy changed the world.”
