Sincere Thanks to Our Sponsors for the Drue Heinz Lectures

The Royal Oak Foundation’s 2018 national program of lectures was made possible by the generosity of the Drue Heinz Trust, our lead sponsor for the past 26 years. The support of the Drue Heinz Trust enables us to maintain a high quality of programming each season and for this we are deeply appreciative. For the Fall 2018 season we also gratefully acknowledge additional support for The Drue Heinz Lectures from the Marian Meaker Apteckar Foundation and an Anonymous Donor.
