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 Monday: Wright receives thousands in grant money

December 16, 2013 at 7:52 am


Beloit College’s Wright Museum of Art has received a $4,629 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The grant will aid the museum in preservation efforts of its vast print and drawing collection that includes work by such artists as Rembrandt and Picasso.

Following up on a 2010 conservation assessment survey, the Wright Museum plans to purchase exhibition light-monitoring equipment and to re-house more than 10 percent of its core collection, or approximately 200 works. The art will be transferred from substandard acidic mats and overcrowded corrugated board boxes to Solander museum cases with mat board. In addition, the museum will purchase a UV meter to ensure safe conditions for the works.
