Planned gifts, of any size, can have a significant impact on Woodstock School. Anyone who includes Woodstock School or Friends of Woodstock School Foundation in their financial plans becomes a member of the Lyre Tree Society and has their name included in commemorative signage on campus.
To date, nearly 100 supporters have become members of the Lyre Tree Society and we hope you will consider doing so as well.
Planned gifts allow you to support our students, programs, and campus far into the future while potentially also providing tax and other benefits to you and your family. If you wish to support Woodstock this way, we invite you to contact us to discuss a planned gift or to make a bequest to Woodstock School.
Alumni wishing to consider Woodstock School in their estate plans and require US tax credit can contact the Friends of Woodstock School (FWS) Foundation directly to explore planned giving options.
