Since it was founded in 2003, the Syracuse City School District Educational Foundation has hosted an Annual Recognition Breakfast fundraiser. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, plans for the 17th Annual Recognition Breakfast paused. We are pleased to announce that the Syracuse City School District Educational Foundation has partnered with WCNY to host the first virtual Recognition Breakfast, which will broadcast Saturday, September 26 at 9:30 a.m. on WCNY-TV. Immediately following the broadcast, please join us at 10 a.m. for the hour-long premiere of the breakfast program in the virtual watch party!

The funds raised by the Annual Recognition Breakfast support the mission of the Educational Foundation, which is to enhance the quality of life and education of children in the Syracuse City Schools. Donations to this event support supplemental educational grants for teachers.

During these challenging times for students, teachers, parents, and school administrators, funds raised by the Educational Foundation are critical to the education in Syracuse City Schools. We are hoping to expand this year’s application opportunities to provide the supplies, technology, and services for teachers and students who are learning in schools and remotely.

In the past 17 years, the Educational Foundation has distributed more than $875,000 in grants for education projects throughout the district. We encourage you to visit the Foundation’s website and learn how these funds are used in Syracuse schools.

We hope you will support the 2020 Educational Foundation Virtual Recognition Breakfast. The success of the Syracuse City School District is fundamental to the health and vitality of the greater Central New York community and we thank you for your commitment to the education of our students.

Donations can be made here on our website at, or by contacting Foundation administrator Jan Quitzau  at 315.391.0259 or by email at
