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.”

Did you know? Beloit College is a non-profit, and our graduates change the world

April 2, 2014 at 7:20 am


When you think of non-profits, you might think of the Sierra Club, Humane Society, Planned Parenthood, or Doctors Without Borders. You probably think of organizations that feed the hungry, protect endangered animals, or advocate for particular groups of people. But did you know that Beloit College is a non-profit too?

Beloit College isn’t a business that exists to make money; it’s an institution that exists with the mission of empowering its students “to lead fulfilling lives marked by high achievement, personal responsibility, and public contribution in a diverse society” and equipping its students to “approach the complex problems of the world ethically and thoughtfully.” And just like other non-profits, Beloit College relies on gifts and grants to operate and serve that mission.

The money that students pay in tuition, room and board, and other fees only covers part of the cost of operating Beloit College. So, tuition ‘runs out’—then what? Gifts from those that support Beloit’s mission make up the difference.

You may not think of Beloit as the primary force behind addressing today’s pressing needs, but the college equips the next generation of leaders who will go on to tackle those challenges directly through LAP experiences, or after graduation by teaching, discovering, saving lives, and founding or working at non-profits and social enterprises that change the world.
