Eagles Chris Long to donate 10 game checks to education equity cause

Former New England Patriots defensive end Chris Long

After the bad events in Charlottesville, Long's hometown, the second generation National Football League player declared that he would donate his first six game checks to provide scholarships to people who would not be able to attend elite private education.

That means all of Long's $1 million base salary will go toward educational initiatives.

Long had already donated his first six game checks to provide two scholarships for students in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"I think we can all agree that equity in education can help affect change that we all want to see in this country", Chris told The AP.

"We want these scholarships to be reflective of what the "Cville" community is really about - supporting one another, social equality and building up those in our community who need it", Long said in a statement last month.

Here are the four organizations, who will benefit from Long's final 10 games checks: Summer Search Boston, Summer Search Philadelphia, College Bound and the Little Bit Foundation in St. Louis. His base salary is $1 million this season.

He writes in a release, "I'm playing the entire 2017 season without collecting income because I believe education is the best gateway to a better tomorrow for everyone in America". It encourages fans and businesses to make a donation, with a goal of matching the pledges that Long is making. Long has promised that whichever city ends up donating the most money, he will give an additional $50,000 to that city's organization.

"There's a lot of opportunities to help out and they're wonderful organizations", Long said.
