University of Virginia Jefferson Trust
The Jefferson Trust provides discretionary funding for trustee-selected projects that enhance the University of Virginia as a center of excellence in higher learning. The Trustees evaluate applications and provide grants and stewardship towards the execution of stated project goals. The Trust measures the success of a grant by its ability to encourage creativity, innovation, and leadership. All the projects are varied and compelling, demanding that the Annual Report includes more than charts, financial graphs, and donor lists—every grant recipient’s project is highlighted in the report.
