"Fifty-eight years following my graduation, I am aware of my indebtedness to Furman University. One way I am saying "Thank You" is through a scholarship that reflects my identity, values, and hopes for Furman's future. The scholarship is funded primarily from an asset that I sold. I made a cash gift and also established a Charitable Gift Annuity. I chose this instrument since it seemed to be best for older beneficiaries (like me). It provided the highest charitable tax deduction and a portion of the quarterly income payment is tax-free. I have made several additional gifts including a tax-free IRA contribution. I have also made a provision in my Will to add to the scholarship."
