If you are a local merchant or service provider, we hope that you will consider becoming our community partner.

As a member of the Woodside community, we would like to invite you to join our growing Community Partner program run by the Woodside School Foundation (WSF). Through this initiative, your establishment will have the opportunity to join other local businesses in support of quality education at Woodside School. We work hard to ensure educational excellence but we wouldn’t be able to accomplish our goals without strong, local support. Community Partners will receive recognition in a variety of ways, depending on the level of support—from real-time promotional opportunities during the Grand Auction in May, as well as traditional advertising space in the Grand Auction catalogue. More details on partnership benefits, depending on contribution level, may be found on the attached Community Partner Benefits sheet HERE.
Local businesses support our school and, in return, our families frequent local businesses. And, we need your help. Simply put, without private sector funding, Woodside School would not be able to offer a well-rounded education. The school would be forced to cut programs, such as music, art, technology, language arts, and increase classroom sizes. The success of our fundraising efforts rests not only on the generosity of our parents and teachers, but on the greater community and local businesses.

The Woodside School Foundation is a nonprofit organization comprised of parent volunteers and representatives from the school administration. Our mission is to ensure continued excellence in the academic, social, and cultural environment at Woodside School by providing a dependable flow of supplementary funds. Today the Foundation raises approximately 20% of the Woodside School’s total budget, primarily through its two annual fundraising programs: the Annual Fund and the Grand Auction. This year, the WSF must raise $4,800 per student to bridge the gap between state funding and the cost of today’s education.
We hope that you will consider becoming our Community Partner. You will be investing in the children attending Woodside School: providing for an enriched education that offers the best chance to develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
