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.”

Information on saving for retirement

January 11, 2011 at 4:56 pm


All employees of Beloit College are eligible to contribute to a tax-deferred savings account through payroll deduction. There are no age or service requirements to participate.  Tax-deferred savings (sometimes called salary-reduction agreements or SRAs) allow you to save for retirement and reduce your taxable income.  

Annual contributions into tax-deferred savings accounts are subject to limits set by the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) according to your age. You may increase, decrease or stop your savings at any time during the year. 2011 annual contribution limits are $16,500 for individuals under age 50 and $22,000 for individuals who attain age 50 by the end of 2011. Annual limits are generally subject to cost-of-living increases determined by the government and change over time. Certain other limits may apply depending upon the retirement plan contributions made by Beloit College on your behalf. If other limits apply, you will be notified about your personal 2011 maximum limits. 

If you are already participating in a tax-deferred savings account, your 2010 election amount will remain in effect for 2011 unless you notify the Payroll Office to make a change. 

If you would like to begin contributing to a tax-deferred account, please contact Lori Rhead (ext. 2631 or or Gail Pateros (ext. 2298 or for enrollment information and a payroll deduction form. Contributions may begin at any time during the year.
