Donation Opportunity


Friends of Pine Croft.

Even before we were forced to cancel our first full season of classes due to COVID-19 we had received inquiries about how best to make donations to The Woodworking School at Pine Croft.

Our intentions for the school are two-fold:

1. To provide the best possible woodworking education.

2. To ensure that the long tradition of quality handcraft continues with future generations.

These two objectives can rub against each other uncomfortably sometimes. Young aspiring craftspeople often find the tuition for the highest quality classes to be out of reach as they are struggling to begin their careers, yet to accomplish both of our core objectives we need to find a way to bring them into the school.

You can help us achieve this goal by making a donation by clicking the yellow button in the upper right-hand corner of our home page. We will apply 100% of the money raised to fund scholarships for those craftspeople, and aspiring craftspeople, who can’t afford our regular tuition.

We offer several options for donation on the site which range from a one-time donation of your choice to a “subscription” or monthly donation at whatever level you feel most comfortable.

As we move forward with this campaign we will keep you posted about how selections for these scholarships are made and would gladly accept any nominations for consideration that you feel comfortable offering.

Together we can ensure that the long legacy of craft and woodworking excellence continues for future generations.
