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.”

Upcoming Pagan and Jewish holidays

September 22, 2010 at 9:22 am


Pagan students, faculty and staff are observing Mabon, the fall equinox, today. This is the main harvest festival of the Wiccan calendar and marks the beginning of autumn. It is a festival of thanksgiving.

Jewish members of our community will celebrate Sukkot, a festival commemorating the wandering of the Israelites in the desert and the final harvest, beginning tomorrow at sundown and going through next Wednesday, Sept. 29. Then two more holidays begin, back to back: Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah. Shemini Atzeret, or the Eighth Day of Assembly, is a celebration of God’s special relationship with the Jewish people; at sunset that evening, the one-day holiday Simchat Torah begins, celebrating the end and beginning of the annual cycle of weekly Torah readings.
