Young Benefactors

The Furman Young Benefactors program embodies Furman’s strategic priority on young alumni and celebrates qualifying donors with special invitations to exclusive events and young alumni leadership opportunities.

Why join Young Benefactors?

Young Benefactors represent the strength of Furman’s young alumni base, and Young Benefactor donations help support any number of projects and initiatives at the university. Please consider a gift to any of the following designations that directly impact our annual needs.

  • Furman United (need-based scholarships and assistance for current students)
  • Furman Athletics Fund (athletic scholarships)
  • Undergraduate Research and Internships
  • Study Away
  • Areas of Greatest Need

Benefits include Young Benefactor-specific events, local young alumni leadership, and early communication from Furman regarding key university matters.
