Chance the Rapper, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Nicki Minaj were among this year's most charitable celebrities. DoSomething.org dropped their annual Celebs Gone Good ranking Tuesday, honoring artists and other stars who use their platforms to inspire their respective fanbases to get involved with social issues.

For 2017's ranking, Chance took the throne from 2016's No. 1 Beyoncé thanks in part to the launch of his New Chance Arts & Literature Fund in Chicago.

Rihanna lands at No. 4 after bagging Harvard's Humanitarian of the Year Award, while Minaj's efforts at helping fans pay off their student loan debt helped her score the No. 11 spot.

Back in May, Complex spoke with two students who were having their school loans covered by Minaj. "My mom, she just got hired this year, and she was literally just talking to me about giving me $5,000 or $10,000 to pay some of my loans," University of Las Vegas student Jordan Kennedy said at the time. "It was really ironic because that's exactly what she was going to do. It definitely is a relief. It makes me want to grind even harder to finish school. I plan on going to law school, getting my degree in political science. It just makes me want to help people out in the future and return the favor in some way. It definitely is a huge relief, for sure."
