Dosomething.org has released its 2014 “Celebs Gone Good” list, which features the website’s take on the top 20 most charitable stars of the year.

This year’s list, which is its seventh annual release, includes Miley Cyrus, Emma Watson, Beyonce and Justin Bieber, to name a few of Hollywood’s most giving.

Country-turned pop star Taylor Swift took the top spot for the third year in a row. This year, she donated of the proceeds of her single “Welcome to New York” to the New York City Public School system.

Laverne Cox, transgender star of the hit series Orange is the New Black, is 2014’s runner-up. She supported LBGT rights, which sparked a national conversation about the transgender movement.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter placed third on the list. “Beyoncé declared herself a feminist in a big way at this year’s VMAs, and she launched numerous #BeyGOOD campaigns,” the report reads. “#BeyGOOD has aided in putting people back to work, restocked clothing donation centers and provided counseling, housing, food and medical assistance to the homeless.”
