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.”

From the board meeting: purchase agreement for Powerhouse approved, May 5 event planned

April 27, 2014 at 4:14 pm

At its Saturday morning session, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved a Definitive Purchase Agreement that outlines the terms for the college to purchase the Blackhawk Generation Station from Alliant Energy/WPL.

The DPA formalizes the college’s agreement with Alliant Energy/WPL, and sets the terms for the building’s sale and transfer, should the college successfully raise the money needed to turn the building into an activity and recreation center for the college. Management at Alliant will vote on the DPA this week.

The approval on the college’s end signals the board’s continued interest in the Powerhouse project, and Alliant and Beloit College’s shared commitment to pursuing that future outcome.

“This is two-and-a half years in the making,” said Christina Klawitter, dean of students, after Saturday’s session. “There’s been incredible good will between Alliant and the college throughout that time, a commitment to open dialogue and partnership, and a seriousness and enthusiasm about this project. I’m just thrilled that we’re this much closer to making this building a reality.”

The board of trustees, which spent much of its Friday committee sessions discussing aspects of the project, also used its Saturday morning session to endorse next steps, which include forming a building committee to aid in the next stages of the project.

Powerhouse project update scheduled for May 5

On Monday, May 5, the college will host a campus event to bring the community up to speed on the Powerhouse project. The event is tentatively scheduled for 12:30 p.m. in Moore Lounge. (More details to come.)
