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.”

Playing for a cure

October 26, 2010 at 10:55 am

 

The Beloit College Volleyball team will be joining the Midwest Conference in their home finale against Ripon College on Wednesday night, honoring National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NABCM) in the “Play for the Cure” campaign.

First serve is at 7 p.m.

The conference office has partnered with MWC volleyball teams who will be wearing pink “Play for the Cure” T-shirts in pre-game warm-ups during select conference games. “Play for the Cure” tees will also be available for sale during various home contests with help from Student-Athlete Advisory Committees within the Midwest Conference and online at MidwestConference.org as a fundraising initiative.

“The Midwest Conference Volleyball Coaches feel that it is very important to raise awareness about cancer amongst our campus communities,” says MWC Volleyball chair Jen Saylor of Lake Forest. “To do it together will hopefully make a stronger statement. For our athletes to come together and support the cause is just a small stride in the fight against cancer.”

The NBCAM program is dedicated to increasing public knowledge about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.  NBCAM works together with various associations to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention and cure.

“Midwest Conference volleyball coaches deserve all the credit for putting their enthusiasm and effort behind this initiative,” noted Chris Graham, Midwest Conference Commissioner. “We are pleased to be supporting awareness and fund-raising for such an important cause.”

Wednesday night will also be Senior Night for the Bucs, with Mary Parker, Caitlin O'Leary, Tess Jacquez and Laura Toth playing their final home match.  Beloit finishes up the regular season with road matches at Lawrence University on Friday night and at St. Norbert College Saturday afternoon.
