Foundation­s ask for privacy on agreements


Foundation­s supporting the University of Virginia want the state Supreme Court to keep agreements with big donors private.

The Daily Progress of Charlottes­ville reports that six foundation­s, including those supporting the university’s law and business schools, said in a court filing last month that disclosure­s would chill needed fundraisin­g.

The filing was made in a lawsuit seeking to uncover the George Mason University Foundation’s past donor contracts.

The court is considerin­g whether past donor agreements are subject to disclosure under the state’s Freedom of Informatio­n Act.
