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.”

Another event going on is a Sustained Dialogue summit on racism at Beloit from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium. Here is the note sent out from the organizers:
Recent racist acts on our campus - starting with defaced and damaged property, escalating to violent racist drawings and graffiti - have had devastating, direct impacts on many members of the Beloit community, and extremely harmful effects on our entire community. As an immediate response, current SD groups have engaged in continued dialogue around these events.
We now invite ALL students, faculty and staff members to join us in the dialogue.
In small group dialogue and large group speak-out sessions, we will explore
- possible causes and personal impacts of the graffiti and other overt racism on campus
- the institutional climate, culture and policy framework in which they have occurred
- how we as a community should address such attacks in the future
- what we might do as individuals and as an institution to prevent them from happening again
Our community needs to hear your voice. Dialogue is an crucial part of the ongoing process of rooting racism and other forms of discrimination out of the classrooms, residence halls and offices of Beloit College.
Please take a moment to RSVP here. We need to estimate attendance in order to place everyone in a dialogue group. Breakfast food and beverages will be served beginning at 8:30 a.m.
