DINS DAY IS April 26, 2022! Please give to support Furman students and faculty.

Furman University students, alumni, parents and friends will kick off the eighth annual Dins Day, a 24-hour celebration of Paladin pride and philanthropy, on Tuesday, April 26.

“Gifts of all size – from $10 to $10,000 – make an immediate impact on Furman and its students,” said Gloria Goosby, Furman’s director of annual giving. “When the Furman Family unites, they open doors for our students to further dive into experiential learning opportunities, broaden their academic horizons and continue to change the world around them.”

Dins Day events are returning after a hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions. Furman FAN Clubs will be holding events in the following cities:

  • Athens, Georgia
  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Birmingham, Alabama
  • Charleston, South Carolina
  • Charlotte, North Carolina
  • Chattanooga, Tennessee
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Greenville, South Carolina
  • Lexington, Kentucky
  • New York City, New York
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Richmond, Virginia

Furman alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and Friends of Furman can register for a Dins Day FAN Club event here. No costs is required for attendance.

In addition, Furman alumni are encouraged to post images to social media of themselves in their Furman gear and with the “Support Furman Students” poster that was sent to thousands of Furman supporters.

“I’m excited to see all members of the Furman family rally for the areas that mean the most to them while helping advance The Furman Advantage,” said Goosby.
