So, for a long time, I have been looking to donate 2% of our income to a local charity. I have been searching and searching and finally found something that I really believe in…New York City’s Fund for Public Schools.
From establishing new academically selective schools to investing in training for school leaders, The Fund for Public Schools attracts private investment in school reform and creates school-based partnerships that strengthen the city’s public schools and make a real difference in the lives of students.
These public-private partnerships have generated unprecedented support for New York City’s public schools. Since 2003, the Fund has raised more than $180 million to support system-wide reform initiatives This support has catalyzed student learning and provided resources for system-wide reforms, significantly improving the educational experience for students, teachers, parents, and school leaders.
So, for every bride we sign up, we will be giving a 2% donation to the Fund. I really feel good about this because eventually, I know I want my kids (whenever I have them) to go to a public school in NYC!
They are also taking books if you have books to be able to donate to the schools.
