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.”

It barely got above 40 degrees, but that didn’t keep Beloiters from happily strolling around campus with ice cream cones. Or running bare-legged in the Turtle Trot, for that matter. Even Apple, our favorite campus guide-dog-in-training, earned a Turtle Trot T-shirt.

If you missed the action, check out the Spring Day 2011 Facebook album or at the college’s YouTube channel.

Crowds gathered in the 609 Quad for carnival games and a Blink 182 band, and in the Field House for the ever-popular Martial Arts Club demonstration, featuring none other than our turtle-in-chief—fresh off a morning run around Riverside Park, where it was remarked by one runner that our spry leader is “hard to keep up with!”

And, despite the cooler temps, signs of spring were still evident, as seen below.
