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.”

In the news: Erica Daniels and family make the front page

August 15, 2014 at 3:50 pm

So you think you had a busy summer? Try hosting 200+ family members for a three-day reunion. That's what Erica Daniels, project coordinator in the provost's office, did on Aug. 8-10 in Beloit.

The theme of the reunion was "Morrow Reality T.V.,” with the events of "Morrow Idol" (a spinoff of Fox’s singing competition American Idol), "Throwdown with the Morrows" (a spinoff of the cooking show Throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Network), "Dancing with the Morrows" (a spinoff of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars), and "Sunday Best" (a spinoff of the gospel singing competition show Sunday Best on BET).

The shindig was featured in a Beloit Daily News photo spread last week (see it‒and Erica‒here).

“After two years of planning this event, I must say that it was very entertaining and filled with fun, laughter, and most of all a great family,” Daniels said. “It was a pleasure to be able to host in Beloit. My family, the majority of which have never been to Beloit, truly enjoyed their time here in this wonderful city that I like to think of as a hidden gem. The weekend was an overall success, and I am proud that I was able to show off such a great city!”
