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.”

College receives $125,000 gift supporting Beloit opportunities

November 4, 2013 at 6:40 pm

State-of-the-art equipment in the classroom, one-of-a-kind student learning opportunities, and enhancements for one of the college’s renowned programs-- all are being made possible through the generosity of an anonymous donor.

Last week, the college received a $125,000 gift that enables students to practice the liberal arts in a variety of ways.  At the donor’s request, a portion of the gift will be designated to the purchase of a 300 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer. The spectrometer, a key component to understanding structure function relationships of compounds in the chemistry classroom, will give students and faculty the opportunity to work with the latest technology in science—an invaluable benefit for field work and research, and one that is not often found at the undergraduate level.

As the campus community continues the good work surrounding the development of the powerhouse, this gift has also been apportioned to student learning opportunities throughout the process. This gift will be used to provide additional opportunities for students to be intimately involved in the work underway.

Finally, this generous gift is being used to enhance one of Beloit’s top programs and commitments-- student advising. A portion of this gift has been set aside to fund experiences centered advising and the fall and spring Advising Practicums.

Said the Terrarium’s sources in the development office: “This is just one example of the many ways in which our alumni and friends continue to provide life-changing opportunities at Beloit through their philanthropy.”
