In the 1960's the Woodstock Opera House was in great disrepair. Many groups wished to save that historic building, but none were more committed than the Women's Guild, which became The Woodstock Fine Arts Association. Today, the Woodstock Fine Arts Association is a non-profit 501©(3) organization governed by a Board of 26 dedicated volunteer members. We remain committed to the preservation and restoration of the remarkable Woodstock Opera House and to providing inspiring programming on this historic stage.
For the first 50 years of the WFAA, we had ongoing support from our extensive 'membership.' These early supporters of the organization are the primary reason the WFAA is so successful today. Recently the category of 'membership' has been changed to 'supporter.'
We invite you to become a supporter of this established organization. Make a donation to the general organization, or in support of a specific program, such as Opera House Restoration, Children's Programming, Creative Living or Scholarships. Checks should be made payable to the Woodstock Fine Arts Association, with your donation specified, should you wish.
