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.”

Museum Mondays: bringing community kids into the Wright Museum

December 9, 2012 at 10:55 pm

Through generous support of the George S. Parker Exhibition Fund, young people from the Merrill Center and the Boys and Girls Club explored portraiture at the Wright Museum of Art. 

Beloit College and the Wright Museum partnered with Doodles of Beloit to provide an opportunity for kids from the Beloit community to visit the Wright Museum's new exhibit, Looking Ahead, and then create portraits of their own. Beloit College senior and studio art major Miguel Estrella’12 is helped Doodles facilitate this community outreach.

This is one of the initiatives begun by the Wright Museum this semester to create opportunities for Beloit College students to introduce middle school kids to art and to be introduced to docent and teaching experiences.

Earlier this month four Beloit College students led Help Yourself students in a discussion about art at the Wright Museum (pictured below).
