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.”

June 20, 2012 at 9:45 am

The Wright Museum of Art has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the assessment of its collection of oil paintings. Two senior painting conservators, David Marquis and Joan Gorman from the Midwest Art Conservation Center in Minneapolis, Minn., will conduct the review on campus from July 16 through July 20.

The Wright Museum exhibits and cares for over 350 paintings including works by Camille Bombois, John Colt, José Guerrero, George Inness and Theodore Robinson among others.

“We have a substantial collection of American Impressionists and Tonalists that so many people don’t even know about,” said Museum Director Joy Beckman.

During the conservators’ visit, they will hold a painting conservation workshop at the Vision Beloit Center on Tuesday, July 17 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. to highlight the basics of painting deterioration and preventative care in an effort to assist the community with caring for family heirlooms and artwork.

Those interested in attending the workshop should contact the Wright Museum at (608) 363-2677 or
