Billionaire who helped bankroll Washington Monument refurb does same for Jefferson Memorial

Billionaire philanthropist David Rubenstein announced Tuesday that he is donating $10 million for upgrades, new exhibit space and other improvements to the ailing Jefferson Memorial in Washington.


The money will go toward rehabilitating the antiquated 25-year-old exhibits on the lower level and creating a new exhibit area on the main level near the 19-foot-tall bronze statue of Thomas Jefferson, the nation’s third president and main author of the Declaration of Independence.
