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.”

MEET: BSC President Jeb Bleckley

October 5, 2010 at 1:32 pm


Jeb BleckleyName: Rev. James Edward "Jeb" Bleckley, III.
Hometown and current residence: From Austin, TX; now on Haven 3rd.
Campus Involvement: BSC president.
What’s the number one thing on your bucket list? Well, the number one thing is to not die. A close second would be to publish a book.
Proudest moment? I am so insufferably over-proud, that it is difficult to separate out a single incident in my charmed and perfect life.
Any do-over requests to lodge with the universe? Explain. I think a do-over for really anything I have ever done would be a little silly, since most of the time bad things have happened, they have happened because I was lazy. Problem is, I am still lazy, so going back and telling myself to get off my duff and accomplish things will fall flat. Good novels have convinced us that character progression is the natural course of things, but most of us never change, leaving do-overs superfluous.
What three items go in your desert island backpack? The internet, a computer, and a hand crank generator
