Shop and Support NYC Public Schools


Every year The Fund for Public Schools holds an incredible fundraiser called Shop for Public Schools. This year the program runs from October 1 through October 8. The Fund’s Vice-Chair Caroline Kennedy is running the show and has signed on some huge retailers. All the shops participating pledge a percentage of sales or a flat donation to The Fund for Public Schools during the designated week.

Caroline says,“The program is growing each year, and this year is shaping up to be our biggest yet. Despite the tough economic times, we have a record number of retailers..." The funds are awarded through a competitive grant program, Library REACH, which awards schools up to $10,000 to purchase books, furniture, technology and other resources to improve their libraries.
