The Guild depends on the support of families, friends, foundations and other grant-making institutions as we seek to expand the impact of our work with youth and adults with intellectual disabilities. In 2019, we serve 140 students and adults residents double the number we served just five years ago.

But as we educate, encourage and empower more individuals with special needs, we seek philanthropic support for our community-engagement activities and person-centered enrichment programming not paid for through tuition dollars.

By supporting The Guild community, you are helping each community member to achieve their full potential and participate meaningfully in society.

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.

Memberships

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.
