moneyNY is a great place to shop. And it’s even better when you know that the places you’re shopping in are saving you money and helping public schools at the same time. That’s what Schoolit does. 

Schoolit, started by PTA parents of Manhattan public schools, lets local business offer discounts – kind of like Groupon.  But instead of keeping all the profits,  Schoolit donates 50-100% of its proceeds back to local schools.  In this way, Schoolit provides schools with much needed income year-round, helping compensate for the budget cuts and fiscal challenges so many schools face.

So basically, you can shop, get a great deal, and get that great feeling that fills you when you know you’ve done something good!


So before you head out shopping on your next trip to NY, head on over to and check out the deals.

You’ll get the same great shopping – and you’ll be helping public school kids in NYC.
