MLK Chapel Restoration Project

Make an Investment

An investment in restoring our global treasure is an investment in the ideas, vision and courage of emerging scholars and servant leaders who, in ways small and grand, will carry on King’s legacy.

After nearly four decades of serving the College and the larger community as a sanctuary, performance venue, museum and the College’s largest classroom, the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel, understandably, has begun to show significant signs of wear and age.

To ensure that the Chapel is prepared for the demands of the 21st century, in true ecumenical fashion, Morehouse is extending an invitation to invest in the Chapel’s restoration to every individual, corporation and foundation that values the inestimable contributions of King and those who strive to further his dream of a “great world house.”

Simply put, the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel belongs to the world. It is our chapel. It is a cherished, incomparable treasure of the global community and, as global citizens, we must support efforts that keep this Chapel and its programs relevant and thriving for new generations of world leaders.

The College has embarked on a fund- raising initiative to raise the $8 million needed to complete the restoration project. One of the first to join our effort is The Robert W. Woodruff Foundation.
