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.”

A pic from the President, currently in China

The college’s relationship with China extends to the earliest part of the last century, and continues today, as President Bierman is currently in the country visiting alumni, parents, and prospective students in Shanghai.  

Several alumni are traveling from Hong Kong and other places in Asia to join Bierman at these events; over the weekend, he headed to Beloit’s partner university, Henan University in Kaifeng, with Betsy Brewer, Warren Palmer, and Daniel Youd for that university’s centennial celebration.

Below, President Bierman shares a picture from his travels.

“Wen Zhi Tang was president of what we now call Jiao Tong University in Shanghai and is Eddie's great-grandfather,” Bierman wrote. “Eddie's grandfather is the famous CY Tang '18 who is the first Chinese student to attend Beloit (encouraged to come to Beloit by his father). Eddie's father was Xiao-Xuan (Edward) Tang'49.”

The president is expected to return to Beloit on Wednesday.
