45th Anniversary Annual Fund—Help Us Grow the Oak in 2018!

Royal Oak members raised over a million dollars to help restore Knole, one of the most historic of National Trust properities. This legacy ensures that visitors can continue to experience England’s largest house.

Dear Royal Oak Members and Friends,

Supporters like you have played a crucial role in engaging Americans in the life and protection of the National Trust’s historic treasures. We rely on our Annual Fund to be able to do this meangingful work.

An important part of our investment in 2018, our 45th year, is a new website. This revitilized resource will make your user experience more effective, providing you with easy access for membership benefits and lecture ticketing. It will also feature enhanced content to make Royal Oak and the National Trust more accessible.

In addition to restoration fundraising, such as that for Knole, our educational programs also depend on the Annual Fund. The Nigel Seeley Fellowship, giving an American student or young professional the career-changing opportunity to work closely with National Trust experts at the Knole Conservation Studio, is one of many examples.

Since 1973 your contributions have also enabled Royal Oak to present distinguished speakers around the U.S., bringing our mission home to many members. Access to our lecture series enables thousands of our American supporters to learn about subjects ranging from British history, to preservation, to remarkable figures in politics, arts and culture.

We hope you will make a contribution to our 45th Anniversary Annual Fund.

With thanks and best wishes,


David Nathans
Executive Director and CEO
