Preservation: To conserve, protect, and maintain Monticello in a manner which leaves it unimpaired for future generations;
Education: To interpret and present Thomas Jefferson and his legacy to the widest possible audience, including scholars, students, educators and the general public.
The Thomas Jefferson Foundation’s vision is to engage a global audience in a dialogue with Jefferson’s ideas. Through virtual, off-site, and on-site engagement, the Foundation stimulates interest in Jefferson and applies its extensive research and knowledge to reveal his genius in a variety of pursuits, from architecture and the arts, horticulture, cuisine, agriculture, natural history and science, to philosophy, political ideals, education and the rights of man.
The Foundation has a long history at the forefront of historic preservation. Among the highlights of our restoration projects are the gardens of the East and West Fronts of Monticello in the 1940s, the recreation of Jefferson's innovative Vegetable Garden Terrace and Pavilion, and the complex roof systems of the main house. In all its pursuits, the Foundation relies upon the continual process of research, restoration, conservation and archaeological initiatives to support the accuracy of its programs.
