Get involved with as many of our community projects as you wish to...

This is an overview of projects Woodstock Community Trust has parented to date.

Current Projects

East End Park

Woodstock residents and visitors of all ages come together at East End Park to relax, play and connect with each other. The park represents the culmination of more than a decade of work by area residents who transformed a previously neglected corner of the Village into an inviting  community space. The group continues to maintain the area and plan for its future. The park has become a treasured community asset, a "jewel" created from a "jungle".

One House at a Time

One House at a Time makes it possible for people with moderate incomes to own a home. The project buys a house, makes any necessary repairs and improvements before reselling the house with a down payment grant to qualified households. The project is a collaboration between Woodstock Community Trust and Twin Pines Housing.

Local Deeds

Local Deeds protects housing for families and individuals  who live and work, or will work, here year-round serving the local community. The project buys deed restrictions on existing and new properties in exchange for cash that can be used by the owners of these homes for their own purposes.

Past Projects

Woodstock Area Relief Fund (WARF)

In 2020, Woodstock Community Trust became the fiscal sponsor for WARF (Woodstock Area Relief Fund): COVID-19. WARF raised and distributed $916,000 in aid to 855 individuals who were struggling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteers and donations from individuals and foundations made this community effort possible.

Naked Table

In 2019, the Woodstock Community Trust was the fiscal sponsor for Naked Table, a community building project run by ShackletonThomas. Held on the Woodstock Green in 2019, volunteers from 21 area non-profit organizations made their own sustainably sourced tables under the knowledgeable eyes of the ShackletonThomas furniture makers. 

The Equal Care Fund

The Equal Care Fund enhances equitable access to mental health and educational services for those residing in the Upper Valley regardless of financial standing. Woodstock Community Trust gave the Fund a 501c3 home so they could fundraise as they established a long term 501c3 arrangement. Visit https://www.equalcarefund.org for more information.
