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.”

From the Middle: A busy board meeting, policy work underway

October 11, 2013 at 1:50 am

At its weekly meeting earlier this week, the college’s senior staff talked about the discussions and business that occurred at the board meeting on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 4-5, discussed next steps related to the powerhouse project, and heard about a set of policies being developed in the finance and planning office.

Here, a brief highlight of the work (and discussions) that occurred this week:

A busy board meeting
A total of 31 members (28 board members and three life trustees) were on hand for the weekend’s board meeting. As reported in the
Round Table, and in a press release distributed earlier this week, at its Saturday meeting the board endorsed the ongoing partnership with Alliant Energy and approved the hiring of an architect for converting the nearby Blackhawk Generating Station into a campus activity and recreation center.

Also worth noting: Cecily Murphy Majerus’80, elected to the board in the spring, attended her first board meeting this past weekend.

Current board chair Jim Sanger elected to fourth, three-year term
During its executive session on Saturday, the Trusteeship committee brought forward the recommendation that Jim Sanger, the current chair of the board, return for a fourth term as
board chair-- a nomination which Sanger accepted. Since Sanger still has one year left in his current term, that means that he will serve the board as chair for the next four years, terminating at the October 2017 meeting. He became board chair in 2005.

Accounting policies under development
Vice President Laurie Stickelmaier brought to senior staff a number of accounting and procurement policies for review and consideration in coming weeks that will guide purchasing activity, the signing of large contracts, and other business and accounting processes. These principles and policies are designed to ensure the college and its budget officers follow best buying, spending, and reporting practices in the future. Stay tuned for more as those are reviewed and finalized.
