The New York City Department of Education yesterday announced that Taylor Swift has donated $50,000 to the city’s public school system. Here is why…

Shortly after Swift moved to NYC last year, the city tourism bureau made her the official “Welcome to New York” ambassador, which was first announced on ABC’s Good Morning America along with her new song “Welcome to New York.”

“New York was a huge landscape for what became this album. It’s affected my life in ways I’m not even aware of fully… I’m still learning, but I’m so enthusiastic about this city that when I love something, I’m very vocal about it,” Swift told ABC.

And vocal she was. Swift made a pledge that, as part of expressing her love for the new home, she would donate proceeds from her “Welcome to News York” single to the city’s public schools.

“It’s selling really, really well, which is good because I’m donating all my proceeds to New York City public schools,” the singer said on The View last October.

This week, she made good on her promise.

“We’re deeply appreciative of this kind gesture to donate her proceeds of the single ‘Welcome to New York’ to benefit NYC public schools,” Press Secretary for the Department of Education, Devora Kaye, told E! News.

The $50,000 was just a first installment as she “will continue to donate the proceeds she receives from the sale of the single ‘Welcome to New York’ to NYC public schools,” a spokesperson told E! News.
