Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are about to do some serious giving for #GivingTuesday Nov. 28.

The social network and the charitable organization are teaming up to match up to $2 million in funds raised for nonprofits in the U.S. via Facebook.

Facebook will match $1 million in donations to U.S. nonprofits—up to $50,000 per nonprofit and $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button—and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will also kick in $1 million.

The social network also shared the following ways that users can give back in an email to Social Pro Daily:

  • Create a Fundraiser, post or go Live: Visit Facebook.com/fundraisers, click “Raise Money” and select from 750,000 nonprofits for your fundraiser.
  • Post: Write a post and tag your favorite nonprofit. You’ll see a prompt to add a donate button after you post.
  • Live: Tap “Live” at the top of your News Feed and click “Add Donate Button” from the menu.
  • Click and Donate: Find nonprofits on Facebook and donate directly to the causes you care about.
