Mission

Woodstock Community Trust is a non-profit umbrella organization that empowers teams to carry out local projects to improve the quality of life in our community.

Vision

We envision a healthy, vibrant and supportive community for people of all ages, identities, and walks of life.

History

Woodstock Community Trust was founded in 1997 by a few Woodstock residents who devoted twelve years to creating an affordable housing development in Woodstock. Revived in 2018 to continue to create more reasonably priced housing in Woodstock, over time Woodstock Community Trust began to support several other projects. In 2020, Woodstock Community Trust was the fiscal sponsor for the Woodstock Area Relief Fund (WARF). Working together with many volunteers WARF raised, managed and distributed nearly $1 million in aid for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
