*WENN is reporting that the executive director of Kanye West’s charity sent out an e-mail informing associates that the organization has been shut down.
Created by his late mother Dr. Donda West to combat the high school drop-out rate across America, the Kanye West Foundation had been in operation for four years.
But former executive director, Joseph Collins, sent out the following email last month:
“I am reaching out to let you know that the Kanye West Foundation has officially closed it doors after a successful 4+ years of programming and events,” wrote Collins. “It has been an incredible experience working with Kanye and the board to realize his mother’s vision and I am honored to have been given the opportunity to lead the Foundation.”
