Taylor Swift has donated $4 million to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to set up the Taylor Swift Education Center.
Swift expects her educational facility will be open by 2014. It will include an exhibit and classroom.
“In terms of what it will allow us to do, we do education very well now,” museum director Kyle Young told Billboard. “It will allow us to do what we do better, serve more people, develop new programs, and I’m happy to say that as we talked through this opportunity with Taylor, she very much wants to be involved in an advisory capacity in what we do. Is there a better person out there who’s in touch with a young audience? I think not. I was joking we should be paying her to do that. I was only joking.”
The Taylor Swift Education Center will be part of a $75 million expansion of the Hall of Fame. With her donation the Museum will be able to add new programs and workshops for teens and senior citizens.
