Taylor Swift donated $113,000 to an LGBTQ organization called the Tennessee Equality Project (TEP) on Monday, April 8, and did it in classic Swift style — with a handwritten note.
The foundation’s executive director, Chris Sanders, took to Facebook to share news of the 29-year-old “Delicate” songstress’ generous contribution alongside a message of thanks.
“Dear Chris, I’m writing you to say that I’m so inspired by the work you do, specifically in organizing the recent petition of Tennessee faith leaders standing up against the ‘slate of hate’ in our state legislature,” Swift began her letter pictured in the post. “Please convey my heartfelt thanks to them and accept this donation to support the work you and these leaders are doing.”
Sanders captioned the post: “Taylor Swift has been a long-time ally to the LGBTQ community. She sees our struggle in Tennessee and continues to add her voice with so many good people, including religious leaders, who are speaking out for love in the face of fear. Tennessee Equality Project is honored and grateful to reveal Taylor Swift has made a donation of $113,000 to support our efforts at this critical moment.”
