The Fountain Restoration Project Update


We have been unable to give the contractors the GREEN LIGHT to begin work on the FOUNTAIN. We need at least $40,000 in additional funds to begin the project and $135,000 to complete all of the work and establish the FOUNTAIN ENDOWMENT to maintain the Fountain for future generations.

We are grateful for the 100 donors who have given to this project. If you have not had the opportunity to participate in the project yet, please consider giving to ensure the FOUNTAIN will continue to be a centerpiece on campus. You can give online here or by mailing a check made payable to Truett-McConnell College Fountain Fund.

We will have the gate ceremony for the incoming Freshman Class on the evening of August 17th. The gates will be back up, but the fountain will be dry for the third year in a row.
