The WEF has provided funding to teachers and administrators for more than 133 unique educational enrichment programs since 2005. Notable programming that would not have been possible without WEF support include consistent funding for the Middle School Drama Club musical in the Fall, robot coding programs, civil war re-enactments, and a competitive after school public speaking program. For the elementary school the WEF supports innovative uses of technology for reading, experiential learning in Native American culture and STEM labs.

In 2018, the WEF was the sole sponsor of an innovative art initiative centered on rainforests involving classroom collaboration with students in Brazil and Guatemala. There is no limit to the creative ideas Woodstock teachers and administrators bring to the Woodstock Education Foundation.
