The Annual Fund is one of the most critical funding sources for Hoosac School. The fund bridges the gap between tuition and operating costs by providing money for academic and athletic programs, campus improvements, financial aid, extracurricular activities, and teaching excellence. It is the primary means by which alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends provide yearly financial support to the school.
Named after Hoosac's Rector-Headmaster from 1941-1957, The Rev. Meredith B. Wood, this Foundation was established in 1999 by Keith Adams '54 and John Pulsifer '54 in order to provide scholarships to current Hoosac students who are the embodiment of those qualities Father Wood instilled in his students.
