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.”

VIDEO: Trick or...vote?

This Halloween, Mariana Lindsay'09 will be going door to door, in costume, but it won't be candy she's asking for.

Rather, she'll be asking for votes.

Lindsay is working with the Trick or Vote project, founded in 2004 in Portland, Ore., her hometown. Costumed volunteers like Lindsay knock on doors, reminding people to vote, distributing nonpartisan voter guides, and generating both grassroots and media awareness just before the election. She and a colleague were recently interviewed about the project on Fox News--dressed as a cowboy and the bride of Frankenstein, respectively.

"Back in 2006, I started out as a volunteer with the Bus Project, a Portland-based non-profit group that started Trick or Vote," she explains. "After I graduated college, I participated in their fellowship program for young leaders and then got hired on to work in their fundraising department. The Bus Project helped start the Bus Federation, which now runs Trick or Vote nationally."

This year, she added, there will be over 80 Trick or Vote events all over the country, including one in Madison

"People just--they think it's a hoot," Lindsay said in the Fox segment.
