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.”

Recent graduate wins fellowship to fight hunger, address food issues

May 12, 2013 at 11:59 pm


Recent Beloit College graduate Brian Shobe’12 was awarded a fellowship with the Emerson National Hunger Fellows Program. The fellowship is only offered to 20 people each year, making this quite a notable distinction.

For five months, fellows work in community-based organizations across the country, working to combat issues like poverty, hunger, and social inequality.  After reuniting and debriefing in Washington, D.C., the fellows engage in extensive policy training regarding these issues before starting work in related nonprofits or governmental agencies in the capital.

At Beloit, Shobe was a Duffy Intern and worked on community garden projects in Rockford with the organization Roots & Wings.
