GuideStar 2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency


How your support helps

Community engagement

Gifts fund community-engagement activities and person-centered enrichment programming not covered by tuition dollars.

Capital purchases

Gifts help support capital purchases such as swing sets or exercise equipment at the residences, generators and anything that does not fall into the category of general maintenance.

Assistive technology

Gifts allow for the purchase of iPads, tablets, computers and smart boards for use in The Guild School and the residences.


Gifts permit The Guild to buy memberships in external programs – gyms, community centers and farm collaboratives, for instance – that support efforts to integrate Guild students and adults into the communities in which they live.

Specialty staff training

Gifts help fund specialized training for Guild staff, including conference attendance, seminars, workshops and classes.
