After successfully engaging with hundreds of University of Virginia students and faculty over the past two years via awareness-raising initiatives and civic engagement projects of mutual benefit to the University and Charlottesville communities, The Charlottesville Institute is no longer in active operation. Many thanks to all of the generous donors, volunteers and other supporters who helped us to make a positive difference during this time. We urge you to extend your support to any of the following organizations who work day in and day out to make Charlottesville a better community, often involving members of the University community in that process.
