About WEDF

Worcester Educational Development Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization invested in the success of every student in the Worcester Public Schools. We support programs that inspire creativity, unlock new opportunities, and encourage the pursuit of excellence. 

…we are cultivating a committed community of alumni, parents, current and former teachers, and organizations who believe in the value and impact of public education.

In addition to maintaining our strong partnership with the school district, we are cultivating a committed community of alumni, parents, current and former teachers, and organizations who believe in the value and impact of public education.

Like thousands of public education foundations across the country, WEDF works to give our students more – from basic needs to extraordinary experiences. Since our founding in 2005, we have raised and distributed over $5 million.

With Worcester in a period of renaissance, strong schools are key to advancing the city’s economic growth and vitality. Join us as we support and celebrate our most precious resource: our children.
