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.”

There are still free tickets available at the BIFF Box Office (at Visit Beloit, located in the building next door to the Hendricks Center) for the taping of Director’s Cut, Wisconsin Public Television’s popular focus on independent film, filmmakers, and creative thinking. 

The two programs will be recorded for future presentation starting at 1 p.m. this Sunday, Feb. 20, at the Eclipse Center in Beloit. Admission is free but tickets must be picked up in advance. The program, with host Charles Monroe-Kane, is seen weekly on Public Television and introduces narrative and documentary films made by indie directors and explores their Wisconsin connections.
