Wow, this is so sweet! Taylor Swift is so in love with New York City that she has decided to donate ALL of the proceeds from her song ‘Welcome To New York’ to their public school system.
Taylor Swift, 24, may be known for being boy crazy, but she has just proven that she has a beautiful heart inside of her. The singer/songwriter announced during an appearance on The View that 100% of the proceeds from “Welcome To New York,” off of her brand new album “1989,” will be donated to the public schools.

Taylor Swift Will Donate Song Proceeds To New York Public Schools
If you haven’t purchased Taylor’s new album yet, what are you waiting for? It’s amazing!
Not even that, but it is also helping a very good cause: the public school system of New York, New York.
While discussing how much she loves it in New York, the singer revealed that she is donating proceeds from her hit song “Welcome To New York” to the school system.
“It’s selling really well — which is good, because I’m donating all of my proceeds to New York City public schools,” Taylor told The View hosts on Oct. 29.
The news was received to a large applause, but she took it all in stride. It’s a really sweet gesture for Taylor to not only call New York her home now, but to care so much about the future of the city’s children.
Great work, Taylor!
Taylor Has Been Named The Global Welcome Ambassador Of NYC
Not only has Taylor found a new home in NYC, but the city itself has welcomed her with arms wide open.
In fact, she was recently named the city’s Global Welcome Ambassador!
“We’re deeply appreciative of this kind gesture to donate her proceeds of the single ‘Welcome To New York’, to benefit NYC public schools,” said the Department of Education spokesperson, Devora Kaye, reports the Daily News.
That’s awesome, and so well deserved for Taylor. She has so much to celebrate now, especially with the massive success of her “1989” album!
