Woodstock’s unique position in the world as a 169-year-old institution that is international by – and in – nature is more important than ever. We are asking our community members, past and present, to partner with Woodstock to achieve our potential and maximize the impact we make when our students go out into this world of difference, fully equipped to navigate and thoughtfully play a positive role in it.
Woodstock’s focus for this year’s crowdfunding drive is “International by Nature.” This refers not only to our Himalayan setting, but also to our history, character, and ethos. Woodstock School has been international in its community, outlook, and educational approaches since long before international curricula were adopted in schools across India. This legacy of sharing experiences with those from diverse backgrounds has created a unique culture of teaching, living and learning at Woodstock that is simply not available anywhere else in India – or in the world! We want to celebrate this vital element of who we are while ensuring its continuation well into the future. We consider this vital as religious, national, and cultural polarization are on the rise globally, and rapid change is placing increasing stressors on our people, communities, and natural environment.
We need support from community members like you, because tuition does not cover all we – as a mission-driven school – need to achieve our full potential. To provide some context, the average percentage of annual income received from external funding for boarding schools around the world is 22% compared to the 5.5% of annual income received from external funding at Woodstock School.* This funding includes grants and corporate donations as well as personal philanthropy. Woodstock aims to grow across all of these areas and looks forward to you being a part of our efforts (see the bottom of this page for our combined community fundraising goals for the year).
