Help support the historic preservation and restoration of a national, iconic landmark.
The Rotunda was designed by Thomas Jefferson as the architectural heart of his vision for his community of scholars or what he coined the 'Academical Village' at the University of Virginia.
Inspired by the Patheon in Rome, the Rotunda has weathered monumental revolutions and discoveries remaining a public anchor for nearly 200 years.
In 1987, it was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, which includes other prestigious palisades such as the Taj Mahal, Versailles, and the Great Wall of China.
Major renovations and restorations are imperative and efforts are currently underway to maintain this symbolic structure that has represented the fundamental values and beliefs instilled by our founding fathers.
Show your support for this country's history, architectural impact, and future academic excellence by contributing to the Rotunda Ball campaign on Indiegogo.
