Thank you for an incredible Dins Day, Paladins! 

While our 24-hour giving day is over, we will continue calculating gifts in the coming days. So far more than 2,000 members of the Furman family gave nearly $600,000 (and counting!).

We can’t wait to share the final results with our Furman community.

[Dins Day 2022] Challenge winner updates!

Hi Paladins!

We're less than 3 hours away from the end of Dins Day and we want to CELEBRATE the success of wonderful donors and advocates.

The 8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. hourly challenge winner is Football with 33 gifts from loyal donors.

Academic departments are still working for the $2,500 challenge to the fund with the most gifts. The top three funds as of 9:00 p.m. are Military Science (57 gifts), Music - Pianos for Paladins (54 gifts), and Biology (28 gifts). This academic departments only challenge ends at 11:59 p.m. ET, so there is still time to ensure your department earns additional funds.

We also want to CONGRATULATE the Institute for the Advancement of Community Health donors for unlocking $25,000 for IACH! 

Review the remaining challenges at https://mailchi.mp/furman/dins... and gear up for the final challenge of the day, which will run from 11:00 p.m. - 11:59 p.m. ET. The fund with the most gifts will get a $1,500 toward their fund.
