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.”

TONIGHT: June and Edgar Martin Memorial Lecture, 7 p.m.

October 26, 2010 at 5:02 pm


After spending several days on campus in class rooms and panel conversations, Israel Kirzner, Emeritus Professor of Economics at New York University and a leading figure in the Austrian school of economics, will be presenting the June and Edgar Martin Memorial Lecture at 7 p.m. tonight in the atrium of the Beloit College Center for the Sciences.

Kirzner has devoted much of his career to clarifying the central role entrepreneurship plays as a driving force in the market process and has examined this role in numerous publications. In contrast to standard economic theory, Kirzner beings his analysis by understanding the world as it is --- shrouded in uncertainty. It is this uncertainty, Kirzner argues, that triggers the entrepreneurial search for profits.
