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.”

Giving it up: Beloiter Fund up by $300,000

June 30, 2014 at 7:48 am

Beloiters from around the world have helped the college meet its ambitious 2013-14 annual fund goal. According to the Development Office, gifts to the Beloiter Fund exceeded $3.3 million this year. That's approximately $300,000 more than last year's goal and constitutes a 45 percent increase from five years ago.

Gifts to the Beloiter Fund support operational and physical needs across campus, as well as initiatives such as Renewing the Historic Core, scholarships, the Liberal Arts in Practice, and athletics.

"Achieving this record-setting Beloiter Fund goal demonstrates the incredible belief in and support for the direction, goals, and aspirations of Beloit College among our alumni, parents, and friends, including many of you,” says Mark Wold’95, senior director of alumni and parent relations and annual support. “We know that Beloiters lead the lives they choose for themselves, not lives chosen for them. This incredible support for the college makes transformational experiences‒both in and out of the classroom‒possible, and provides students with the tools to go forth to live lives of purpose and consequence."

A few things to know about the Beloiter Fund and this year's gifts:

  • The number of gifts increased this year over last
  • Gifts to "greatest need" made up the largest share of this year's contributions
  • This isn't all: Total giving to the college‒through planned gifts, grants, and more‒exceeded $9 million this year
