Donor Appreciation Week


DAW


If you are a Furman student, your education has been made possible by philanthropy.

 

Whether it's through student scholarships, lab equipment, or building renovations, Furman's donors made it possible for you to learn and grow. From February 16-20, we will take a week to celebrate and thank the Furman donors who complete the student experience. Join us in our time of thanks and education about how important donations are to our Furman family.

Questions about Donor Appreciation Week? Email Anne Fleming '96, Executive Director of Development Communications.
