“I wanted to do something worthwhile, and do it while I am still around to enjoy it.” To memorialize his father, who holds a special place in UVA’s history, Flory established an endowment that combines a current five-year pledge with estate plans that will support the scholarly pursuits of the arboretum curator, who will be known as the Walter S. Flory Jr. Professor of Environmental Sciences.

Through his will, Thomas Jefferson gave the University part of his personal library (the rest went to the Library of Congress). James Madison also included UVA in his will, giving both money and volumes from his own library. Madison’s gift of $1,500 established the University library’s first endowment, which still provides funds annually for the purchase of books.
Donors like you have a long tradition of making planned gifts that continue to provide a secure foundation for the University’s future.
The Cornerstone Society comprises forward-thinking alumni, faculty, parents and friends who give to the University or its related foundations through estate or financial plans, or other deferred gift arrangements.
