The Woodstock Fund for Excellence
To support the unique educational community that is Woodstock School, we look to our worldwide community of alumni, parents and friends for support. With your contribution to the Woodstock Fund for Excellence you enhance the distinctive programmes and projects at Woodstock, which cannot be met by student fee income alone. Donations to the WFE support a variety of initiatives such as:
- Building and infrastructure developments
- Ongoing programmes, for example those at the Hanifl Center for Outdoor and Environmental Education, including hiking and camping, natural history projects, presentations by visiting naturalists, and outreach activities
- Faculty and Staff development

Frequently Asked Questions about the Woodstock Fund for Excellence
How does the WFE affect Woodstock's operating budget?
Each year, Woodstock School depends on a combination of fee income and charitable contributions to achieve its educational objectives. Each year we set a goal for contributions for capital project improvements such as staff and employee housing, special student projects and professional development opportunities for staff.
The WFE helps support the ENTIRE Woodstock community; accordingly we seek help from the worldwide community of past and present parents, alumni, staff and friends.
Why is a gift of ANY size important to the WFE?
Support of the Woodstock Fund for Excellence represents your belief in the continuation of the Woodstock School mission, and your dedication to the maintenance of this vision for current and future students. Your gift of any amount demonstrates to our alumni, past and current parents, and foundations your continued commitment to the Woodstock community. Small gifts add together to become large ventures.
What is the best reason to support the Fund?
Over the years the WFE has provided the additional money needed for scholarships for students, professional development opportunities for staff, extra-curricular programs in music, art, drama and sports, updating staff and employee housing, and providing a safe supply of electricity, water and building maintenance for over 1000 people who live, study and work on the 280-acre Woodstock campus. This year donations will continue to supply money for all of these ventures as well as funding expanded outdoor education opportunities.
I would like to support the WFE, but I do not have the current amount available that I would like to give.
Consider a monthly gift. A sustaining gift gives you control of your monthly expenses but also demonstrates your fiscal support of Woodstock's current and future mission. The monthly charge on your credit card can be cancelled at anytime on your request. Go to the Friends of Woodstock School website for more information. (External Link)
