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.”

Condolences to the family of Ruth Greenlee Davis

January 2, 2014 at 7:52 am

Ruth Greenlee Davis, wife of Emeritus Professor of Political Science Harry R. Davis, passed away the day after Christmas, Dec. 26. 

Ruth could have coined the term “Beloiter,” for she was certainly a proud and loyal one, both of the college and the city. Arriving in Beloit with Harry in 1948 after earning her B.A. and master's degree from the University of Chicago, Ruth was a regular at campus cultural and social events and was perhaps best known as the long-time coordinator of the popular faculty-staff international dining club. A member and officer of the First Presbyterian Church and active in the Rock County Democratic Party, Ruth served numerous roles across a wide array of local organizations. She and Harry lived in Beloit until 2010 when they moved to Madison.

Ruth is survived by her husband Harry, her children Peter, Scott, and Martha and their spouses, three grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

 A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014 at 2 p.m. in the Resurrection Chapel, Oakwood Village, 6225 Mineral Point Road, Madison, Wisconsin. Memorial gifts may be made to the United Church of Beloit, 657 Bluff St., Beloit, WI 53511.
