Worcester Educational Development Foundation, Inc.
The Worcester Educational Development Foundation, Inc. (WEDF), a private, 501 (c) 3 corporation, is organized for the sole purpose of supporting the Worcester Public Schools and identifying resources to meet the needs of the district. In doing so, WEDF serves in a fund raising and fiscal agent capacity for various departments within the district.
Annually, WEDF supports the arts, health and wellness, technology and other educational needs of the district. Our mini-grants for teachers program has provided more than $100,000 for innovative classroom projects since 2005.
We accept contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations. WEDF also undertakes fund raising activities to raise additional funds that have included road races, the Worcester Public Schools Athletic Hall of Fame, student concerts, and banquets. The Distinguished Alumni and Friends of the Worcester Public Schools program features successful graduates who were educated in our schools.
WEDF looks to the generosity of a caring and committed community to help us with our work.
