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.”

16 students receive tens of thousands towards putting the liberal arts in practice this summer

May 3, 2012 at 10:35 pm

This summer, Beloit College will spend more than $300,000 to help fund student internships and research. With $31,000 of that amount drawn from several Liberal Arts in Practice Center-administered scholarship funds, 16 students will pursue opportunities across the globe and right here in Beloit, ranging from work with the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans and a youth organization in Costa Rica to a theatre company in Chicago or a health clinic in Beloit.

Please congratulate the students (a list is attached in pdf form to the right of this post) who have received funding through various gifts administered through the Liberal Arts in Practice Center, which supports beyond-the-classroom summer learning. These students put together competitive proposals which detailed how their internships would enhance their academic and professional goals, what they had done to equip themselves to take advantage of these opportunities, and what funding was needed to make it happen. As you see, their plans span the globe and the disciplines; many thanks to the generous donors who have made this possible.

Of course, these are only some of the many Beloit-only funding opportunities available to our students. For a more complete list of opportunities, please check out It is not too soon to be thinking about what might be possible next summer.
