Floyd’s family has received an overwhelming outpour of support from around the world. 

Many high profile figures have also reached out to help ease some of the financial burden they are facing, including boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and Kanye West

A GoFundMe page set up by Floyd’s brother Philonese surpassed its $1.5 million goal, raising more than $14 million (as 06-15-20) to pay for the family’s travel and legal expenses. 

A second page set up by an attorney for the mother of Floyd’s daughter reached its own goal of $1.5 million, Business Insider reports. 

The money will support Floyd’s family and his children.

Floyd’s younger sister, Bridgett, also launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise $5,000 to help pay for her traveling and other expenses related to his memorial. Once the campaign raised over $377,080, she deactivated it.

“As a community, we want to come together in this time of need and assist Gianna’s mother, Roxie Washington, by donating whatever we can to help provide mental and grief counseling for George Floyd’s youngest child, lodging and travel for all court proceedings, and to assist Roxie [Gianna’s mother] in providing for their child’s continued well-being and education,” attorney Tiffany Lee said.

Last week, Texas Southern University in Houston revealed they had “approved a fund to provide a full scholarship for Floyd’s beloved daughter, Gianna … if she wishes to attend the University.”

Earlier this month, Kanye West created a 529 college plan to fully cover tuition for Gianna. He reportedly donated $2 million to cover legal expenses and support for the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

Mayweather helped pay for Floyd’s funeral and memorial service.
