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.”

Tuition Fact #2: Did you know…

March 20, 2013 at 10:32 pm

…tuition and room and board only covers 86 percent of the cost of running Beloit College, so by this time in March, tuition “runs out.”

Ninety percent of Beloit students receive scholarships and financial aid to help make college more affordable. In fact, after financial aid is given out, the money Beloit actually brings in from tuition and other student fees only covers 86 percent of the annual cost of running Beloit. That means that by about this time in March, tuition “runs out.”

But Beloit College can’t shut down in March. Students need to attend classes and eat. Residence halls need to be heated or cooled. Classrooms and labs need equipment and professors! Student internships and study-abroad terms need to be paid for.

If it were just up to student tuition to keep Beloit running, we’d have to stop classes just after spring break. Or we’d have to raise the price of tuition and cut the amount of financial aid given out. Luckily, even though all the tuition money has already been spent, Beloit College will still be open for business next week. Check back in tomorrow to find out who pays for your education when tuition money runs out.
