The hefty donation was taken straight out of the band's fund which was launched in 2017. The amount will go to National Bail Out and Black Visions Collective.

In an official statement, the "Sugar We're Going Down" hitmakers wrote: "When you discover rot deep within your house you don’t just paint over it. You dismantle it and rebuild a better house."

The pop punk outfit added: "We support the black community in the struggle against racial inequality, injustice, and police brutality by committing $100,000 from the Fall Out Boy Fund this summer."

They ended the statement by saying they'll continue to expand their support of the movement. "We realize this is a marathon not a sprint and plan to continue and expand our support."
