The star currently owns homes in Nashville, Los Angeles, Rhode Island, and New York City.
Taylor Swift also loves to use her net worth for good by spending her earnings on others. For example, Business Insider reported that to celebrate the end of her 1989 tour, the singer took her 125-person band & crewmates on vacation with her to Australia. How fun!
The superstar has also been incredibly generous with her money, using her earnings to donate to charities and good causes all over.

She also pledged $4 million to the Country Hall Music of Fame to fund Taylor Swift Education Center.
Recently though, Taylor Swift has been making headlines for contributing her net worth for the folks who really need it. It turns out that the star, along with her mother Andrea, quietly donated $50,000 to a GoFundMe campaign, which helped the funders exceed well over the goal. The money went to Vickie Quarles, a mother of five from Tennessee who lost her husband from COVID.
To that, Vickie Quarles stated: “I would like to especially say thank you to Andrea and Taylor Swift for your thoughtfulness and generosity from our home state of Tennessee. I appreciate the sweet personal note, it warmed my heart. The road ahead will definitely not be the same without Theodis but with each day I am humbled and anchored in hope that I can continue to raise the girls to be as compassionate and caring as all of you”.
Swift is famous for making donations quietly. She made headlines last year when she pitched in $30,000 to help Vitoria Mario, an eighteen-year-old in London, attend university to study math. She wrote: “I came across your story online and am so inspired by your drive and dedication to turning your dreams into reality. I want to gift you the rest of your goal amount. Good luck with everything you do!” How kind!
