In a Medium post on Thursday, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and his wife Cari Tuna said they're throwing their financial backing behind the Democrats to the tune of $20 million.

Like many Democratic voters, we don't support every plank of the platform, but it is clear that if Secretary Clinton wins the election, America will advance much further toward the world we hope to see. If Donald Trump wins, the country will fall backward, and become more isolated from the global community.

The donations are split across several organizations, with the largest contributions of $5 million going to the LCV Victory Fund (League of Conservation Voters) and For Our Future PAC.
