Country sweetheart Taylor Swift digs deep to help a good cause.
Taylor just donated $4 million to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to fund what will be called the Taylor Swift Education Center, an exhibit and classroom space that will focus on music education and programs for kids and senior citizens.
Taylor’s donation is the second largest ever given and is the first largest to be donated by a musician. The museum’s director shared:
“In terms of what it will allow us to do, we do education very well now. It will allow us to do what we do better, serve more people, develop new programs, and I’m happy to say that as we talked through this opportunity with Taylor, she very much wants to be involved in an advisory capacity in what we do. Is there a better person out there who’s in touch with a young audience? I think not. I was joking we should be paying her to do that. I was only joking.”
As if we needed more reasons to adore her, right?
