Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success
The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.
Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make #BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.
“The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.
Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

On Thursday, Feb. 4, Beloit College’s Department of Athletics learned college had received quite an honor. Beloit was recognized with the January Division III Diversity Spotlight Initiative.
The award was granted by the NCAA in recognition of the college's work with inclusive and diverse practices and programming, including its involvement with Black Lives Matter Beloit (#BLMB).
The award comes with a $500 prize to be used towards future initiatives.
According to head volleyball coach Dawn Redd, who nominated the college for the award:
“I applied because we have such a strong dedication to diversity initiatives, evidenced by our strong faculty/staff/student infrastructure.” She said the prize will be pointed toward the ongoing work occurring on campus, though a specific use has not yet been determined.
