Support the Meriwether Lewis Institute
The Meriwether Lewis Institute for Citizen Leadership is made possible through private support. If you are interested in learning more about ways to support the Lewis Institute, please contact Nicole Thomas, Chief Development Officer, at [email protected].
There are many gift opportunities for the Lewis Institute, including endowment support, giving any amount to support ongoing program operations, or sponsoring specific parts of the program. For example, a donor could choose to sponsor a particular element of the Institute, such as the opening dinner, the media training session, the trip to Monticello, or a series of guest lectures. Gifts to the program in any amount can be put to good use and are very much appreciated.
We invested in the Meriwether Lewis Institute because we believe in the power of leadership. UVA’s commitment to student self-governance makes it an ideal setting for the development of the problem-solving, communication, and strategic thinking skills that set students apart at UVA and beyond. We look forward to seeing the lasting impact the Lewis Fellows will have on the University.”
