Dear Royal Oak Members and Friends,

We hope this year has brought you opportunities to discover and enjoy places rich in history and beauty. Our Royal Oak family shares an affinity and appreciation for such important sites and stories.  Thank you for your past support that helps make possible some of the National Trust’s priority projects in the areas of conservation, education and acquisitions.

In case you have not already given to the 2017 Annual Fund, we write now to ask you to join us in making a contribution to Royal Oak. These yearly donations sustain our work and enable us to thrive in protecting our shared cultural heritage. Your generosity makes a difference.

To show the impact of your support, here are some of this year’s accomplishments:

– Our Chartwell Appeal funds interpretation enhancements and secures personal objects at Sir Winston Churchill’s family home, safeguarding his   legacy for the future.
– Our Follies benefit raised funds for urgent conservation work on the Chinese House at Stowe.
– Our Nigel Seeley fellow worked on collections at Knole.
– Our Drue Heinz Lectures brought a robust calendar of noteworthy speakers to 10 U.S. cities.
– Our U.K. Tours saw historically strong enrollment (organized in partnership with Albion.)

Your support has enabled us to achieve these successes.  We ask for your continued generosity by making a gift to our 2017 Annual Fund to strengthen our impact in achieving our mission. Thank you for being a part of The Royal Oak Foundation family. Best wishes for the holidays.

Sincerely yours,


David Nathans
Executive Director and CEO
