As the former president of Arts Britannia, Marjorie G. Rosen organized decorative/fine arts tours of the UK and designed and sold her own line of hanging garden baskets. Her love of tourism and horticulture also informed her tenure as a board member with the Royal Oak Foundation. While she sat on the Royal Oak board of directors, Marjorie G. Rosen had the chance to travel to many important UK gardens with leading figures in British horticulture.
All members of the Royal Oak Foundation gain membership in the National Trust of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, an organization that dates back to 1895.

It also preserves and maintains 350 country homes of the British aristocracy and other important historic sites.
Their regular membership fees give Royal Oak Foundation provide unlimited admission to all National Trust assets with an all-access pass. Other benefits of Foundation membership include a National Trust handbook and parking pass, three editions of the National Trust members’ magazine, two editions of the Royal Oak newsletter, and discounted entry fees to a range of partnering museums and heritage attractions.
