Taylor Swift Donates Remainder of $1 Million Pledge to Louisiana Flood Victims

Taylor Swift has allocated the funds remaining from her $1 million donation to flood relief in Louisiana.

After massive flooding earlier this year, the 26-year-old superstar pledged to give $1 million to causes across the state, which has included schools and food banks.

This month, Taylor donated funds to Convoy of Hope, The Life of a Single Mom and YWCA Greater Baton Rouge as well as $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity, which aims to rebuild 100 homes in Baton Rouge by the end of next year.

“The generous donation from Taylor Swift could not have come at a better time for our organization…Thank you, Taylor Swift, and to all those at the Taylor Swift Foundation, for your kindness and generosity in these challenging times,” YWCA Baton Rouge, said on their website.

    Wonder who she notified first, the media or the accountant in charge of her tax write offs.

    Good to know. Anything contributed by Kanye ? Katy ? Colin Kaepernick ? Let me know if I missed out on their contributions.

    People do not save any money on donations. they just do not have to pay taxes on the amount they donate. In other words the tax on that $1 million would have been around 40% or $400,000 so she is actually out $600,000, and the city, county, state, federal gov. out $400,000.
    All of these donations were first announced by the recipient not her press.
