"We Hold These Truths...Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

With support from caring individuals like you, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation was created in 1923 to restore Monticello and share Jefferson's world-changing ideas with a national and global audience. Since its founding, the Foundation has welcomed nearly 27 million visitors to Jefferson's iconic home, now designated a United States National Historical Landmark and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Monticello is touchstone for all who seek to explore the enduring meaning of “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Your support helps us to safeguard this national treasure for years to come.

Together, we can hold these truths for future generations.
