PEOPLE POWERED

Since the beginning, Woodfordia has relied on the power of community to bring our festivals to life. We owe the strength of our organisation to the tens of thousands of volunteers who offer their dedication and time. We also owe a great deal of gratitude to our donors who gift their energy financially.

Without the heartfelt contribution of the many people involved over the years, we would not be able to inspire, create, entertain or as a dear friend once said “plant a seed of hope and love in the heart of every man, woman and child who visit Woodfordia.” It is through this synergy of grassroots community effort and donation that we have been able to hold festivals for the past 33 years—and continue to do so for the next 500.

As a parkland dedicated to the arts and humanities, we are one of the only festival organisations that, not only have a permanent home, but are determined to ensure the existence of this beautiful place for future generations. Thank you to our volunteers and donors for helping us over the years—we could not have done it without you.

To continue to support our organisation, we would be so grateful to receive a donation through:

The Bunyas ($10,000+)
Donations over $10,000 contribute to the development of new infrastructure works.

The Swamp Wallabies ($5,000 – $9,999)
Donations ensure Woodfordia hosts the world’s most inspiring artists, speakers and guests.

The Fungi ($1,500 – $4,999)
Donations help restore our site and its wondrous ecosystem.

The People ($500 – $1,499)
Donations ensure we can pay and support staff to run our organisation.

The Butterflies ($100 – $499)
Donations ensure our programming remains accessible for all.

LEAVE A LEGACY

For more than thirty-three years people have gathered at the Woodford Folk Festival to celebrate music and the performing arts. It’s a place where generation after generation of festival-goers have experienced many happy memories and lovely experiences, not to mention a host of amazing performances.

Today, Woodfordia is the iconic home of three festivals, attracting some of Australia’s most talented performers to its stages, and capturing the imaginations of thousands of people every year. We know some of you are so touched by what you have seen and heard that you want to help keep our rich legacy alive by leaving a gift in your will to Woodfordia.

Every legacy we receive supports our work both on stage and behind-the-scenes – making it possible for us to fund new productions, revive favourites and support and nurture future generations of talented young performers. They allow us to reach out to new audiences and enrich people’s lives through music, culture and art, whether in the amphitheatre, live at the Songlines stage, or through our educational talks.

By remembering Woodfordia in your will, you too will ensure that our festivals and our land can be enjoyed by future generations. Through the generosity of enlightened individuals, your legacy will help secure Woodfordia as a place of vision, a vital force across the globe in both music and art, and a home for Australia’s cultural heritage for generations to come. We thank you for your generosity.
