Purpose: Woodruff Place residents have successfully raised thousands of dollars annually through neighborhood contributions, fundraisers, special events, and grant-writing. While impressive for an all-volunteer organization, these funds are only a fraction of what is necessary maintain, let alone improve, the historic infrastructure on a sustainable basis. Further, past efforts relied on the continued dedication of a relatively small group of Woodruff volunteers, whose time and energy cannot be presumed to be permanent.
WPEID is a sustainable complement, not substitute, for these efforts. Woodruff Place’s historic infrastructure – a benefit to all residents – requires the entire neighborhood to contribute financially to support its long-term preservation.
