An international day of philanthropy


We are counting down the days to November 27, 2018 when Furman will celebrate our 6th year participating in this international day of philanthropy.

This year, help us reach our goal of 625 gifts!

Your gift supports an unparalleled education for students that combines real-world experiences and self-discovery. Not only does your support show your commitment to Furman’s students, but it also helps increase our participation rate, elevating the university’s national reputation and the value of a Furman degree.

When we all come together and contribute what we can, there is no limit to the impact we can make!


As a thank you for your investment on this special day of giving, Furman will offer hourly incentives from 5:00am until midnight on November 27. Each hour features something different that you’ll be sure to love or would make a great gift, so plan accordingly!

Here's an Early-bird incentive to get you started (all times are EST):

  • Everyone who donates between now and 5am on November 27 will be entered to win one of five sets of Furman swag you’ll be able to wear or display proudly.
Every Tuesday this month, we’ll reveal items you could receive on Giving Tuesday just by supporting our students, so bookmark this page and be sure to check back on November 13. All winners will be contacted directly.
