Thomas Jefferson's private study at Monticello, which he referred to as his "cabinet," was the heart of his "sanctum sanctorum," and presents a picture of the "Sage of Monticello" as statesman, scientist, philosopher, writer, and visionary. Today, the Monticello Cabinet is the heart of philanthropic support for the Thomas Jefferson Foundation.
Participants in the Monticello Cabinet find their greatest reward in the knowledge that they are assuring Jefferson's legacy, advancing important educational initiatives, and ensuring the preservation of Monticello, one of the world's greatest treasures. Cabinet participants act as personal advisors, advocates, and generous supporters of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation. They explore common interests and enjoy opportunities for engagement, fellowship, and learning offered throughout the year, including seminars on Jefferson and Monticello, special tours and events both on and off the mountaintop.
The Monticello Cabinet recognizes annual gifts of cash or property of $5,000 or more. If you have a passion for advancing the legacy of Thomas Jefferson, please contact us at:
