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.”

Fireside Chat takes on serious subject; campus community invited

December 4, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Members of Phi Kappa Psi hope that you can join them as we honor the memory of a Beloiter lost 10 years ago.

The Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity invites the campus community to one of its Fireside Chats, Wednesday (Dec. 5) at 7 p.m. in the Phi Psi House (810 College St.). Tonight's speakers are Mike and Maggie, the parents of David Byrd-Felker’04. 

David was a philosophy and Spanish double major, a founding member of Voodoo Barbie, and a Phi Psi brother. David studied abroad in Quito, Ecuador during his second semester of his sophomore year—spring 2002. While in Ecuador, David worked with children and spent that the summer exploring Ecuador before planning  to returning to Beloit. However, only a couple weeks before he was scheduled to return, David disappeared, never to be seen again. 

His parents will be sharing their son's Beloit story, the story of his disappearance, and how they have chosen to honor his memory by creating the David's Educational Opportunity Fund. 

The fund grants educational scholarships to poor Ecuadorian children who show academic promise, but otherwise could not afford schooling. In fact, this year, the fund will see its first two college scholarship recipients graduate. One is an Education major, and the other is an environmental studies major. 

For more information regarding the Educational Fund, please go to: davidsedfund.org 

Donations will be accepted at the event, and light refreshments will be served.
