Make a Gift or Pledge

Donations can be made on the St. Elmo Hall website with secure credit card payment, or by mail using the Gift/Pledge card and return envelope that was sent with the current Elmo Newsletter. Contributions should be made to the UVA FUND – ST. ELMO HALL LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE.  Pledge payments can be made in as many as three installments beginning this calendar year and ending December 31, 2017. Payments can also be made by automatic monthly credit card debit. The Alumni Association will assist the Campaign with pledge and donation collections, record keeping, disbursements and investments with the UVA FUND. Based on our goal of raising $500,000, all donations up to that amount will be apportioned as follows:

  • St. Elmo Hall 50% ($250,000)
  • Jefferson Trust 30% ($150,000)
  • Rotunda Restoration 20% ($100,000)

If total pledges exceed our goal, the amount in excess of $500K will be divided equally between the St. Elmo Hall Capital Fund and the St. Elmo Hall-William V. Daniel Educational Fund, which is a section 501-c fund established in 2010 after Bill’s passing. The Fund is intended to support improvements and expenses related to dedicated educational areas of the House, such as the Library. Our commitment to the Jefferson Trust and Rotunda Restoration will be capped at $150,000 and $100,000 respectively.

Because direct donations to the two University initiatives are tax deductible, along with the WVD Educational Fund, it follows that pledges to the St. Elmo Hall Leadership Challenge would be 50% deductible, although donors should consult their tax advisor. In addition, gifts count toward overall giving to the University, including Annual and Reunion Giving, as well as Rotunda Society recognition.
