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.”

Be a reading buddy: volunteer opportunity with local elementary kids

September 26, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Training starts Monday for reading buddies, a.k.a. Beloit College students who would like to volunteer in a local elementary school and work with kids on their reading skills.

Formally known as the Wright Reading Club, the Todd Reading Club was founded by a Beloit College student in the Duffy Partnership program. The goal of the after-school club is to help elementary school students improve their reading and comprehension skills with the help of a “reading buddy” over the course of a semester. This year, the club will be working with second-graders at Todd Elementary, an easy 10-minute walk from campus. 

The club’s current coordinators are Leah Shefsky’14 and Brittany Leonard '13, who point out that the life of the program is sustained by Beloit College volunteers, and they are currently in need of more reading buddies. It’s a fun way to become involved with the community, while also having an impact on a child’s educational experience.

In order to accommodate schedules, the reading club will take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30 p.m. until 4:45 p.m. You can volunteer both days,  or only one. 

Training will take place Monday (Oct. 1) and Thursday (Oct. 4) of next week, and only one training session is required.

If you are interested, please fill out this survey with your name and information about availability.  

If you have any questions, concerns, or just want more information, get in 
touch with Brittany (leonardk@beloit.edu) or Leah (Shefskyl@beloit.edu).
