Community Involvement

The Guild of St. Agnes is proud to be actively connected with its community. We enhance our mission and quality of care every day through community partnerships.

United Way

The United Way has been a long standing supporter of the Guild. The United Way has funded many programs such as:

  • Our Worcester and South County Infant Toddler Programs

  • School Age Summer Field Trips in our Worcester, Devens, Fitchburg, and Gardner programs

  • School Age enrichment programs such as Animal Adventures, Snapology, Talewise, and much more!

The Guild also runs an annual workplace campaign to support the United Ways' fundraising efforts.

Worcester State University Partnership

The new University Collaborative Center located on Mill Street in Worcester, MA serves as a lab school for Worcester State University's Early Childhood Education program. Students are able to gain valuable hands-on experience, utilize observation rooms of off classrooms, and attend class session in the conference room. Several university courses are being taught within the center with plans to continue far into the future!

First Responders

Our community heroes always go above and beyond when it comes to our children. We love our visits from local police departments and local fire departments! Fire departments love teaching our children about fire safety, fire trucks, and having water days with the fire trucks. Our local and state police visit to teach children about safety, being a police officer, and their many police animals and trucks!

Our Government Champions

The Massachusetts and Worcester County champions who advocate for Early Education and Care are so important to the Guild of St. Agnes. 

Leadership Worcester

The Guild of St. Agnes is proud to have two participants in the Leadership Worcester program. Leadership Worcester is a 9 month program that meets each month from September to May.  Each session explores different themes relevant to the Worcester community. Leadership Worcester creates a network of thinkers and doers who are moving the region and each other forward.  Participants connect with key stakeholders, learn from influential leaders, and forge relationships that help them take the next step in their leadership.

Woo Labs

Woo-Labs is a coalition of partners convened by Worcester Education Collaborative that provides 1,300 Worcester students with hands-on project-based learning in out-of-school time to promote their academic and social-emotional growth. Woo-labs is a network of partners advancing educational and racial equity for historically marginalized Worcester k-6 students. 
This tightly woven ecosystem of community-based organizations re-conceives education as a coordinated, child-centered effort in which partners work together to maximize student achievement and remove obstacles to learning.

Worcester Sports Teams

The Worcester Railers and WooSox have been wonderful community partners to the Guild of St. Agnes.


Both teams have hosted educators' night/teacher appreciation night.


Our very own president and CEO, Sharon MacDonald is a WooStar. 

The WooSox Foundation donated tablets to our school age programs as well as a visit from Smiley, Woofster, and WooSox Ryan Fitzgerald!  


The Worcester Railers named the Guild "Non-Profit of the Night" at one of the 2023 games where all chuck-a-puck proceeds went to the Guild. Teachers were offered free tickets to the game!
