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.”

MajeedAs members of the campus and wider community gathered Friday to commemorate the legacy of legendary civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., they also recognized one of their own.

Beloit City Councilman Jim Van De Bogart described keynote speaker Associate Professor Debra Majeed “A dedicated member of the Beloit College staff,” and read a list of Majeed’s myriad accomplishments, before announcing that the city had proclaimed the day Dr. Debra Majeed Day.

For her part, Majeed (pictured here) delivered a moving address titled “Imagine Better: A 21st-Century Response to the ‘Dream’ of King.”

“We can best honor his life and his death by giving ourselves over to acts of justice and liberation, and we do not have to travel outside the city of Beloit or the county of Rock to do that,” Majeed said.
