The Wyckoff Family Foundation will not allow Geneva City School District to apply for funding from the charitable organization in 2022, according to documents obtained through the state’s Freedom of Information Law.
The decision comes after the district failed to report on a grant approved by the organization in December 2020. Reports for all grants through the organization are due by April 15 each year.
The city school district has historically been one of the larger recipients of funds from the 20-year-old philanthropic organization, according to Finger Lakes Times. The district received $16,000 from the organization in 2019, $67,000 in 2018, and $72,000 in 2017, according to tax returns posted on ProPublica.
The foundation has previously funded a number of youth-centered programs in Geneva, including those with the Boys & Girls Club of Geneva, St. Peter’s Arts Academy, and Hobart and William Smith Colleges in addition to the city school district.
