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 were many great fans at Saturday’s first home football game, but below are three who really caught our eye—and will be receiving prizes for their Buccaneer flair.

Josh Smith’15 combined school spirit with patriotism, and the result proved so popular that he became a photo op for other fans at Saturday’s game.

Thanks to members of the Parents Club like Kymber Simonis (mother of Hayden Simonis’14), on the left and pictured here with Shannon Pearson, game attendees were treated to a huge spread of food and drink during tailgating, including this gigantic cake.


Dane Winkler donned a bleached-blonde Mohawk to match his big brother’s (Darth Winkler’15) and a T-shirt emblazoned with “65,” his brother’s number. Sixty-five is significant to the Lewistown, Ill.-based Winklers: The entire family of football fanatics (dad is a high school coach) has worn it in play, starting with Darth’s grandfather.
