In response to the torrential storms and tornadoes that swept through parts of the United States on Saturday (12.09,) killing at least six people and causing extensive property damage, Taylor Swift has donated $1,000,000.00 to help support those affected by the recent Tennessee tornadoes.
Doing her part to support those effected by the devastation, the now 33-year-old billionaire singer/songwriter made a significant donation to the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund at the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
On Monday (12.11,) CEO Hal Cato confirmed the superstar’s contribution to the organization, which provides financial assistance, food, temporary housing, and debris clean-up to the victims.
Not the first time Taylor has demonstrated such philanthropy, in March of 2020 she donated one million to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund to support victims of those tornadoes, writing “Nashville is my home and the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me,” on her Instagram Stories at the time.
Born in Pennsylvania, as a teenage Swift moved to Nashville to pursue her musical career, and though she now owns homes in other American states, the multi-Grammy award winner still maintains properties in Tennessee where she still votes.
Earlier this year, Taylor Swift made generous contributions to food banks in every North American city she played throughout her Eras Tour.
