Taylor Swift donates to Mariska Hargitay’s foundation for sexual assault survivors

Taylor Swift continues to make a stand following Monday’s court victory.

Days after the jury awarded the 27-year-old pop star $1 after ruling former DJ David Mueller had groped her during a 2013 Denver meet-and-greet, Swift acted on her pledge to donate to organizations in support of survivors of sexual assault, including friend Mariska Hargitay‘s Joyful Heart Foundation.

“Joyful Heart is honored to be recognized by Taylor Swift for our work on behalf of and in service to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse,” the organization told Page Six in a statement Thursday.

Though the sum of Swift’s contribution was not released, the foundation’s CEO, Malie M. Zambuto, confirmed Wednesday to the Huffington Post her donation is an “extremely generous financial investment in the movement to end sexual violence.”

Following the jury’s decision Monday, Swift promised to fight for victims of sexual assault.

“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this,” the singer told People in a statement. “My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard.”

Hargitay, 53, who appeared in Swift’s star-studded music video for “Bad Blood” in 2015, commended the music superstar for speaking out.
