Student Giving

Senior Class Gift

Furman aims to grow students who excel in all areas, including philanthropy and service. The Senior Class Gift program allows each graduating class to begin their legacy as alumni by making a gift to support Furman. The purpose of this campaign is to unify each class under a common goal to become lifelong philanthropic supporters of Furman.

Class of 2022 Staff Community Scholarship Fund

This year, the Senior Class Gift program will support the Class of 2022 Staff Community Scholarship fund. The Staff Community Scholarship supports a full-time Furman University staff member, spouse, or legal dependent in pursuit of education at any accredited two or four-year college or university. The scholarship may be used to assist with education-related expenses such as tuition, books, room, and board.
