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.”

Buccaneers Raise Over $1,500 playing for the cure (pic)

October 11, 2012 at 12:05 am

 

The Beloit College Department of Athletics took in a Midwest Conference high of over $1,500 during the recently completed Play for the Cure Week, which ran from Sept. 28 thru Oct. 7.

Play for the Cure 2012 

Spearheaded by Director of Athletics & Recreation Peggy Carl and Marketing & Promotions Intern Tami Magner, the big day of the week for the Bucs came on Sept. 29—Homecoming—when Beloit athletics teams hosted home events.

For the Homecoming football game at Strong Stadium, there were “Making Strides” pink bracelets and lapel pins for sale. In addition, the Football Parents Club sold pink-frosted cupcakes. A “Wall of Hope” was also built featuring pink ribbon cards that were purchased for a donation and an “83-second Drill” was held at halftime to pass the hat for donations (83 is the number of Wisconsin men, women, and children diagnosed each day with some form of cancer).  All proceeds from the day went to the American Cancer Society.

Athletes from every Buccaneer team competing that day wore some form of pink, from pre-game t-shirts to wristbands and socks—even the athletic tape was pink.

The MWC will continue the initiative throughout the 2012-2013 season, with the winter initiative running from Feb. 1-10 and the spring effort taking place from April 12-21. All proceeds from “Play for the Cure” will be donated to various cancer charities for research into its cause, prevention and cure.
