Annual Fund

Support Royal Oak

We hope you will consider an end-of-year gift to Royal Oak

Royal Oak would like to thank you for all you have done to support the preservation and conservation projects we help the National Trust undertake each year.

It is through your generosity that we are able to play our part in these important endeavors as well as to bring British cultural programs to cities across the country.

By these means, we celebrate the shared cultural heritage between our nation and the British people and ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the history, the places, and the culture we love.

All of this would not be possible without the money we receive for the annual fund from supporters like you.

Special Events

Join us for a look into Gilded Age and early 20th-century entertaining at George W. Vanderbilt’s Biltmore House and how it compared to the entertaining depicted on Downton Abbey.

Biltmore’s Curator of Interpretation, Leslie Klingner, will describe the many parallels between life at America’s largest home and Downton’s beloved Highclere through stories about the staff and family’s preparations, the fashionable set who attended, their attire, and the amusements they enjoyed.

Blickling’s Library Appeal

The Royal Oak Foundation is excited to launch our 2019 National Trust appeal to support a major effort to protect Blickling’s remarkable library and make its collection better known to the public. Our patrons’ generosity is what will make it possible for Royal Oak to achieve our goal of raising $250,000 toward this important project. We invite you to join us to help save this most historic building and library.
