Because People Matter
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. --Margaret Mead
Certainly Margaret Mead was right, but Furman has had the good fortune of a large group of committed alumni and friends. Furman has had literally thousands (18,000 to be precise) of alumni and friends who have helped us achieve success so far in the Because Furman Matters campaign. Thank you for generously sharing your time, talents and funds. In particular, we would like to extend our appreciation to these committees, who have been working directly on reaching the overarching goals of the campaign, or to achieve the objectives of a key strategic initiative.
