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.”

November 8, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Friday at 8 p.m., Beloiters will have the chance to see a great concert and see some of their own strutting their stuff in Moore Lounge of Pearsons. ONE at Beloit, in collaboration with AFR Clothing from Florida, is hosting a Fashion Tour Concert aimed at raising awareness of the plight of education for children in Africa.

ONE at Beloit is an advocacy club aimed at addressing poverty and preventable disease in Africa by mobilizing and engaging college students in various awareness campaigns. For the month of November, for example, they're focus on HIV/Aids and its impact on the African continent.

Artist Alexander Star (video) will perform at Friday night's show as Beloit College students put on a fashion show dressed in AFR Clothing apparel. Half way during the show, there will be a short video presentation about AFR Clothing to educate the audience on what they do and see the impact their work has on the children in Africa that are being helped through their endeavors--and how students are making a difference.

AFR clothing will be available for purchase in limited quantities at the show.
