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.”

Businesses and individuals alike were honored at the Downtown Beloit Association’s annual awards ceremony last week. Among the honorees were several people with ties to the college: John Nicholas and Becky Moffett’85.

Moffett is the office coordinator for the Wright Museum of Art and Logan Museum of Anthropology; she and her late husband Kevin Minter received the DBA’s Volunteer of the Year award, which Moffett accepted.

The DBA awarded the college’s Vice President for Administration and Treasurer John Nicholas with the first-ever legacy award. In accepting the award, Nicholas said: “When I first came to Beloit it was down on its luck, but now it’s the envy of others…what Beloit has accomplished is amazing and it’s successful because of everyone who believes that Beloit is worth fighting for.”

Other Beloiters in attendance included Turtle Creek Bookstore Manager Peter Fronk, the new chairperson of the DBA board, and the college’s representative at the event, Director of Special Events Tiffany Warren.
