C.G. Finney School receives $1 million gift
PENFIELD, N.Y. - A private Christian school in Penfield has received its largest gift in school history.
On Monday, the Charles Finney School announced an anonymous donor has given the school a $1 million gift.
The $1 million will be used for a number of enhancements around the private Christian school in Penfield.
"The generosity of this gift is truly remarkable. It really demonstrates the impact the school has on our community of students, staff, family and friends," said Michael VanLeeuwen, President. "These funds will allow The Charles Finney School to make enhancements to further improve upon the education, athletics and programming we provide. I have no doubt the improvements we make will have a longstanding impact for many years to come."
Fifty percent of the funds will be invested into an endowment. The other half will be used for several improvements, including a new outdoor athletic complex that will break ground in early June.
The new athletic facilities will include resurfacing of athletic fields, new bleachers, scoreboard, goalposts, and concessions, press box, recording platform, equipment storage and sound system.
An online learning program for students will also be instituted to provide the option of summer school and additional electives.
Restroom renovations, new signage and lighting are also scheduled for the building.
