How will the Campaign make a difference in your work?

A key goal of the Campaign is endowing excellence. The Papers of Thomas Jefferson is one of the most ambitious and important projects the Thomas Jefferson Foundation has ever undertaken, and the Campaign will provide the resources to complete it, with all that that means for future generations of scholars and laypersons interested in any aspect of early national United States history. Perhaps even more exciting, the Campaign hopes to endow support for the Jefferson Papers in perpetuity, so that our corpus of Jefferson’s words and ideas can always be kept available online and corrected and expanded as new insights and new documents emerge.
