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.”

As part of a series of blog posts centered around the idea of living and playing in Beloit, the Visit Beloit Be in It bloggers capture a personal slice of life in the city.

The experience of Lanier Gordon’67 is especially relevant to Beloiters at the college--he graduated in 1967, and has lived in the area his entire life, aside from several years in the Peace Corps.

In a recent post, “Welcoming Beloit College Students to the Community,” he remembers his own time as a new student, observes a growing bond between the city and school, and celebrates the importance of the liberal arts.
