Your employer could increase the impact of your generosity. Many companies worldwide offer matching gift programmes that allow employees to double or triple their contributions to non-profit or charitable organisations. Please check with your employer’s human resources department to see if they support employee matching funds.

Planned gifts, of any size, can have a significant impact on Woodstock School. These gifts allow you to support our students, programmes, 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 Foundation directly to explore planned giving options.  Ways of benefiting Woodstock School through a planned gift to the FWS Foundation are detailed on the Friends of Woodstock School website.
