Kodak Black Offers to Pay College Tuition for Slain FBI Agents’ Children
Written by admin on February 9, 2021
Kodak Black is giving back.
On the heels of his presidential pardon, the Florida rapper is extending his charitable efforts to the families of the two FBI agents who were shot and killed in the line of duty last week in Broward County.
Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, sent a letter to the FBI Miami Division offering to pay college tuition for the children of Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger. The FBI Special Agents, who dedicated their careers to preventing crimes against children, were serving search warrants in Sunrise, Fla. when they were fatally shot. Alfin was father to a 3-year-old, while Schwartzenberger is survived by her two children, ages 4 and 9.

In the letter, obtained by TMZ, Cohen says Kodak knows what it’s like to lose loved ones and grow up in a single-parent household, and he wants to ensure the mourning families don’t have to worry about their kids’ education.
Kodak was honored for his activism in the community at the annual Power of Influence Awards during Super Bowl weekend in Tampa on Friday (Feb. 5). As part of his charitable efforts, Kodak has provided funding and supplies to daycare centers, donated food for the hungry, and hosted fundraisers for underprivileged children during Christmas.
“He’s always [risen] to the top, in terms of any kind of charity, any kind of giving,” said Cohen. “As much as he’s out in the public, he’s a humble guy.”
His philanthropy helped earn him a pardon from President Donald Trump, who commuted his 46-month prison sentence for federal weapons charges. Kodak, who just dropped his new single “Every Balmain,” previously vowed to donate $1 million to charity if he was pardoned.
