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.”

Community college seeking volunteers for parolee simulation

November 15, 2013 at 7:24 am

 

Blackhawk Technical College is looking for volunteers and program participants for an upcoming Returning Prisoner Simulation. Program participants will each get a new identity of a newly released parolee, during which they must navigate the simulated resource booths to find a job, housing, support, treatment, pay restitution, pay child support, see their agent, get healthcare, etc. Each simulated week is 15 minutes long, and each participant has a different criminal background, posing unique challenges to each participant. The simulation also includes a panel of newly released men and women to talk about the barriers that they face every day due to their conviction and felony record and what steps they are taking to work through those barriers to become productive citizens.

Volunteers for the event will fill the roles of the simulated community resources like the restitution office, housing/landlords, clergy, clothing store, check cashing/banks, police officers, etc.

Staff managing the program are hoping to get professionals who already work with this population  in some capacity (or are planning to go into that type of work) to volunteer to serve as the different community agencies to be able to bring their unique perspective. All participants (volunteers and simulation participants) must pre-register.

The simulation will be Tuesday (Nov. 19) from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Blackhawk Technical College’s Central Campus, located at 6004 S. County Road G, Janesville.
