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.”

Trustees have packed agenda, dance card this weekend

April 22, 2013 at 9:42 pm

The college's board of trustees will be convening for their annual spring meeting later this week, and they sure will be busy. Board members arriving early Thursday evening will be dining with faculty leaders before resting up for Friday's day-long committee and full board meetings. Those meetings will end Friday in time for the Underkofler/Kang awards program at 4 p.m. The board will then be up and at work early Saturday, reconvening to finalize board business before heading down to Strong Stadium for the second day of action at the Beloit Relays. Later that evening, several members of the board will also be in attendance for Ferrall Artist in Residence Tony Scodwell’s performance in Eaton Chapel.

President Scott Bierman outlined some of the board's agenda items during his Conversation with the President talk a few weeks back. Among the items of business he mentioned: approving the college's 2013-14 budget, getting updates on the powerplant project and the outcome of the Phoenix building discussions, as well as other updates from senior staff on ongoing projects across campus.

The booklet for the board’s spring meeting is available here; you must login with your Beloit username and password to access it.
