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.”

Lacrosse team takes time for community (pics)

They might be the newest NCAA sport on campus, but that doesn’t mean Beloit College’s lacrosse team has wasted any time getting involved.

Since fall break, team members have been heading over to the Merrill Community Center twice a week to help out with the organization’s after-school program. Aided by the donation of 10 youth lacrosse sticks from the retailer Harrow, the Beloiters have been teaching local youngsters how to play the game.

Head Coach Bob Dignazio is no stranger to setting up team/community interactions. In his last coaching role he set up a lunch buddy mentoring program, and his aunt had set up a similar lacrosse program in Philadelphia.

“When our team helps spread the game of lacrosse and simultaneously brings students to Beloit's beautiful campus, everybody wins. We committed to making service a part of our program, and this was definitely a great first step,” he says. Already, the team members are making plans for other ways they can spend time with the kids.

“We've spoken about next year doing a tour of the Science Center or Logan Museum. Also, a few of our guys have expressed interest in volunteering at Merrill ‘on their own,’” Dignazio says.
