Based on a statement from Newsis, BTS is also making a donation to Black Lives Matter groups

According to a statement from BigHit (Their entertainment label) which was translated through Google Translate ;

“We are in the process of making a donation. Since we are still in the process of sending money, we are still unable to reveal the donor and the amount of money.”

There’s no word on whether or not BTS plans to announce the organizations and amounts later on, but the band has been known to make sizable private donations in the past both as individuals and as a group.
