Taylor Swift may be the most charitable celebrity of 2015.

The 25-year-old songstress is supporting another close cause to her heart and a fellow Grammy award winner, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.

The Seattle Times reports that Swift decided to donate a whopping $50,000 to the symphony to go toward its two programs:Link Up—a music-education program for elementary school students—as well as its musicians' pension funds.

So what inspired the country-turned-pop star to donate? A performance of John Luther Adams' "Become Ocean," which was commissioned by the Symphony, premiered in 2013 and eventually went on to win a Grammy.

Swift wrote a letter to music director Ludovic Morlot and said the composition reminded her of going to her local symphony with her grandmother in her younger years.

"I was thrilled to hear that Taylor was moved by ‘Become Ocean,'" Morlot said in a prepared statement. "This is a powerful piece with a unique soundscape."

Meanwhile, this is just one of the many charitable moves by Swift lately. Not only did she recently donate a chunk of cash to her dancer's 13-month-old nephew who is battling cancer, but she also gave a $50,000 check to New York City public schools in February and will continue to make donations for every sale she receives from "Welcome to New York."

She's also given away an abundance of her 1989 World Tour tickets to deserving fans, took 125 of her behind-the-scenes crew members on a vacation to Hamilton Island and still managed to find time to support all the other things that are close to her heart.

And this is why, friends, she will always hold a dear place in our heart.
