  • The Royal Oak Legacy Fund supports the Foundation’s work with the National Trust of England, Wales & Northern Ireland.
  • The Ervin-DesChamps Fund, established by Dr. Daniel & Mrs. Anne Ervin in 2008, supports urgent conservation and acquisition priorities at the National Trust.
  • The Royal Oak Programs Fund was created in 2013 to create an endowment for Royal Oak’s national lecture program, the Drue Heinz Lectures, and other educational programs in the United States. Royal Oak also encourages legacy gifts outside the endowment program to support lectures and programs in specific regions, such as the 2012 bequest from a longtime member and lecture attendee in Northern California, which has underwritten an annual lecture in that region for 5 years.
  • The Royal Oak Fund was created in 2013 to support educational, research and public outreach priorities at the National Trust. Royal Oak’s Horan Prize in Garden and Landscape History is supported under this fund with an endowment from the Mudge Foundation.
