Our Future, Our Main

The Campaign for Main Reaches Halfway Mark

Our goal: $31.8 million for the restoration of Agnes Scott "Main" Hall.

thermometer_50-percent_main-campaign_web.jpgAgnes Scott College is excited to share that $15.9 million (50%) of the $31.8 million fundraising goal for the Campaign for Main has been raised to date by more than 325 donors. The gifts have fully funded Phase I and Phase II restoration work which includes foundation stabilization and waterproofing, a new slate roof along with copper gutters, exterior bricks and masonry repair, windows replacement, and more.

Now we need the support of others to raise the remaining $15.9 million to fund Phase III restoration work and successfully conclude the Campaign for Main.

  • Phase III restoration work when the remaining $15.9 million is raised will include administrative offices and student rooms renovation, including furniture, fixtures, lighting and technology equipment; updated plumbing, electrical systems, HVAC and audiovisual equipment; preservation of the bell tower, including the digitization and display of the hundreds of student signatures that adorn its walls.

We recognize the challenge of raising $15.9 million, especially in the face of the coronavirus pandemic; however, it is a challenge that we embrace fully. The importance and urgency of completing the much-needed restoration is not simply about reaching our fundraising goal. It is about returning students to the three residential floors of Main Hall instead of occupying rooms in our Avery Glen Apartments off-campus. Students living and learning in our vibrant campus community as they prepare to lead everywhere is what guides our efforts. Ultimately, the Campaign for Main ensures that Scotties of tomorrow will experience the same history and traditions that began in 1891 and continue today.

"If Main went, a lot of memories would leave. It's a place where people made lifelong friendships, made memories that shaped their lives. For over a hundred years, it has been the center of all Agnes Scott alums' lives at one point. It needs to be here, for tradition's sake."  - Susan Thomas '66
