In 1990, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation chartered the Monticello Cabinet to recognize those individuals whose enlightened philanthropy ensures and enhances our dual mission of preservation and education with annual gifts of $6,500 or more.
Thomas Jefferson’s private study inspired the name. The Cabinet, the heart of Jefferson’s sanctum sanctorum, evokes his role as visionary statesmen, scientist, philosopher, and architect.
Today, the Monticello Cabinet is the heart of philanthropic support for the Thomas Jefferson Foundation.
Participants in the 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. Special opportunities for engagement, fellowship, and learning are year-round, through seminars on Jefferson and Monticello, special tours and events both on and off the mountaintop.
The Trustees and Staff of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation invite individuals, corporations, and foundations to participate in the Monticello Cabinet with an annual gift of $6,500 or more. The Monticello Cabinet recognizes gifts of cash or property for all Foundation priorities.
