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.”

In between hearing about Beloiters’ research and experiences abroad during Wednesday’s International Symposium, make sure you take time to head over to the Eaton Chapel steps at noon. It’s then and there that we’ll be taking the third annual all-campus holiday photo. In fact, the event is planned to fit into the International Symposium Day schedule, so no worries that you’ll have to miss an excellent presentation in order to take part!

Click here to add the photo shoot to your Google Calendar: Wednesday, Nov. 14 at noon on the Eaton Chapel steps. In case of inclement weather, the photo will be taken inside Eaton Chapel.

If the promise of hot cocoa, coffee, and cookies aren’t enough to tempt you, what about prizes?

Like last year, prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Best-dressed individual
  •  Best-dressed office
  • Best-dressed student organization (last year was a tie! Can you break it?)
