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.”

Beloiters volunteer for Empty Bowl (pics)

March 4, 2013 at 7:00 am

Numerous Beloit College students took time out of their weekend to volunteer in last week’s Empty Bowl event, which took place Saturday, Feb. 23. The third annual fundraiser is modeled after an international event of the same name—more than a dozen area businesses offer, in total, dozens of varieties of soups, and decorative ceramic bowls are also often sold. The proceeds benefit Caritas, a local food pantry.

“Well I needed to do some volunteer work for a class and I knew that this was a really good event and a good cause, so I made sure to be here,” Derell Carter’15 told the Beloit Daily News.
