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.”

Jasper will use campus and community initiatives as an exemplar to trace social and moral dimensions of protest from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. A sociology professor from the City University of New York, he is the most recent in a line of academics and community leaders brought to campus each year to discuss current dynamics in community-based work and learning.

The Duffy Colloquium is part of the Duffy Program, which aims to give students both a macro and micro understanding of how institutions interact within society by sending approximately 16 Duffy Interns out to community sites each semester.

The colloquium is sponsored by the Beloit College Duffy Community Partnerships, the department of sociology, and the Liberal Arts in Practice Center.
