Americans donated $400 million as part of the international day of giving in 2018, according to reports .

And this year the Raiders took part in Giving Tuesday with its foundation and surprised three nonprofit organizations with $15,000.

Team representatives also said the nonprofits will be featured on the Raiders Foundation social media accounts, where fans can make donations as well.
