Furman First Gift


The Furman First Gift campaign allows seniors to give back to campus before pursuing post-graduate opportunities and symbolizes the lifelong relationship between you and your alma mater.

The Class of 2019 First Gift is dedicated to the Furman United Endowed Scholarship Fund.

Furman United helps students overcome financial obstacles and finish their education at Furman. Since its creation in 2008, Furman United has helped more than 226 students, providing more than $1.7 million in high-need relief. 

You have the power to help a student in need through your Furman First Gift to Furman United. Together, we can help students stay at Furman.
