We are thrilled to announce that, through the generosity of a few significant donors, we have completed funding for this initiative.

There is no location on the Brenau campus more historic than the front lawn – and the fountain central to this space has always been the visual embodiment of Brenau as well as a focal point of the on-campus student experience. Many generations of women have solidified their engagement with a good-luck dip into the fountain or gathered around during annual May Day festivities.

Funds to support the much-needed restoration of the Grace Hooten Moore Memorial Fountain will ensure this campus landmark remains the centerpiece of campus. The foundation was renovated and rededicated in April of 2014. Read more about the re-dedication ceremony.
