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.”

BIFF it: Campus filmmakers still have time to enter

January 25, 2011 at 5:53 pm

 

This coming weekend, teams of filmmakers from throughout the region will participate in the first Canned Film Competition as part of the 2011 BIFF.  

This Friday, Jan. 28, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., teams will gather for instructions in the lobby of the Beloit Inn, and then will have two days and two hours to make movie magic.  

Filmmakers will be given a genre and a mystery object to include in the film, and will have 50 hours to “plan it, cram it, and can it.” The completed films will be submitted on Sunday (Jan. 30). Winners will be announced at the screening following BIFF opening festivities, and selected films will become part of the film fare of BIFF, shown in Beloit and Janesville.

There is a $50 entrance fee for each team. Details regarding the competition are at www.cannedfilmcompetition.com and  www.beloitfilmfest.com.                       

BIFF 2011 is sponsored by The Hendricks Group of Beloit in association with Beloit College and with a grant from Visit Beloit.
