Student Giving

Student Philanthropy Furman Alumni

Our students are committed to serving the community. Whether working with children or providing free home weatherization to low-income homeowners in Greenville, they experience the power of giving back and "paying it forward."


Formerly known as the senior class gift, each Furman First Gift is selected by seniors as a parting legacy for their alma mater. This "first gift" marks an initial commitment to supporting Furman. Learn about the Class of 2016.

Fuel Furman

Modeled after crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter, Fuel Furman encourages donors to rally around student-led projects. Your support will ignite the fire in our students to fuel the future of Furman. Explore student projects.

Donor Appreciation Week

Each year, our students celebrate the impact generous donors have on their Furman experience with a week-long array of activities and events. See how our students say thanks.
