Robin Hood Oak Society 

Named for the stately English oak tree that has graced the ESF campus for decades, the Robin Hood Oak Society recognizes the distinguished loyalty and commitment of its members - a special group of people who have made a planned gift to ESF or who have included a provision for the College in their estate plans. The Foundation has received over $8 million in realized bequests since the Society was launched in 2004. Learn more about planned giving
