In August 2021, Funko announced a philanthropy-driven initiative, Pops! With Purpose. The brand would release an assortment of Funko Pop! characters tied to charitable causes. Since then, Funko has released Pops! With Purpose benefitting a variety of charities, including Hello Kitty Pops! benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the ASPCA and Make-A-Wish. Now, Funko in collaboration with Color Compton, has released two limited-edition Pops! With Purpose items featuring two Los Angeles-based personalities, Venus Williams and Eazy E.

The collection will benefit Color Compton, an organization that strives to empower all students in the Compton community by sharing the histories of people of color and introducing art as a form of communication. Participating students gain leadership skills and play a critical role in community activism.
