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.”

The 8th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Convocation on Monday featured two riveting performances by the Beloit Community Ministers' Fellowship Youth Choir and stirring speeches by President Bierman, local leader Linda Fair, and student Kaavya Parsa'15.

Though Eaton Chapel filled up fairly well with local community members, campus attendance was noticeably light. Luckily, though, the cameras were rolling.

See what you missed:

  • We called it "riveting," and we meant it. See a few minutes of the youth choir performance on YouTube.
  • Local Vision TV interviews students, Beloit residents, and President Bierman about the importance of MLK's legacy. See the clip here.
