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.”

DIRT ALERT: Eaton gets a bath, more work on historic core coming

April 8, 2011 at 7:20 am


Eaton scrubbingIn case you missed it, Eaton Chapel is getting a bath. Just like the World Affairs Center before it, the stately chapel is getting an environmentally friendly, low-pressure cleaning beginning this week. The historic building, with a cornerstone that will have been set 120 years ago come April 18, was last cleaned many moons ago, though no one is quite sure when. The noise will be minimal during the cleaning, which will be finished by the middle of next week. 

There are several other renewal projects expected to start as soon as today, when crews will begin painting the Middle College trim from the roof line down. Painting may also begin as early as Monday on Morse-Ingersoll, before crews move off to begin wood replacement and painting on some of the college's oldest academic buildings. All these updates are being funded by parents of Beloiters, as well as alumni and friends of the college. 

Stay tuned. Read more about the work, and the gifts that are making it possible, online
