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.”

City offering $1,000 for best rendering of native son

January 11, 2011 at 4:56 pm


The city of Beloit is on the hunt for a logo that lives up to the exploits of its most famous native son—explorer, anthropologist, and Beloit alumnus Roy Chapman Andrews. And it’s willing to pay $500 for the trouble (this in addition to a $500 gift to the Beloit-area charity of the winner’s choosing).

The contest, underwritten by Beloit-based Kerry Americas, is open to any illustrators or artists in the United States, professionals and amateurs alike. The winning submission will be used to brand the city’s new “Explore with Roy” tourism campaign, launching this year. Andrews, the former director of the American Museum of Natural History who appeared on the cover of Time Magazine (and was compared to Teddy Roosevelt) for his discovery of fossilized dinosaur eggs, is believed to have helped inspire George Lucas’ Indiana Jones character.

Additional details:

The design contest is open to all visual artists (painters, as well as graphic artists). Rules and registration forms are available online at PDFs of designs (limit two per artist) should be emailed along with contact name and phone number to by 4 p.m. on Jan. 31, 2011. The winning design will be announced by Feb. 10, 2011. All entries become the exclusive property of the “Explore with Roy” organizers.

A full list of Contest Rules is available online.  More information about the contest sponsor, Kerry Americas, is available on their website.
