Jeffersonian Grounds Initiative

Join the U200

The University 200, or U200, is a community of philanthropists who share a serious commitment to saving the Rotunda.

The Rotunda will be renovated at a cost of $50.6 million. The Commonwealth of Virginia has committed more than half of the cost of the project, but alumni and donors are helping to raise the balance.

Each U200 member pledges support of at least $100,000 over five years to fund the once-in-a-lifetime renovation. These donors will be permanently recognized on a prominent plaque in the Rotunda. To date, more than 83 individuals, families, foundations and organizations have pledged nearly $12 million. We invite you to join the U200 today.
