The Foundation’s Finance Committee meets quarterly in advance of Board Meetings to review contributions received for specific campaigns and programs. The committee evaluates the connection each project has to the Foundation’s mission and recommends grants for approval by the full Board of Directors. The following grants were among those approved by the Board in 2019.
The Royal Oak Foundation raised over $250,000 in 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.
The Library at Blickling is one of the greatest libraries in Britain and was in dire need of preservation from environmental threats like moisture and pests.
