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.”

Free (really!) market held in Pearsons Thursday (video)

December 12, 2013 at 8:04 am

Tomorrow will mark the annual Really Really Free Market, where the name says it all: everything is free. Really. 

Everyone is invited to arrive Thursday (Dec. 12) between 10 a.m. and noon in the D.K.’s Annex with clothing, books, plants, and other items (in good condition) to give and share with others.

There is no buying, selling, or exchanging involved—in this market, everything is strictly free. There are no price tags.

RRFMs have been held worldwide since 2003. Its goal is to promote more sustainable forms of exchange and to help curb consumer waste. Beloit grad Ellery Hamann’12 recently made a video of his own experiences of establishing the very first RRFM in Taiwan:

Any remaining items from the RRFM will be donated to local charities (CARITAS, Goodwill, Salvation Army).
