Are you All In for Beloit?

Did becoming a Beloiter change your life?

Did you find your path, your soulmate, your direction, your purpose by being a Beloiter?

Was there one professor, advisor, or alum who went out of their way to see you succeed, or engage you in a transformative conversation you remember to this day?

Do you want to see Beloit thrive for another 175 years?

Then we invite you to Be All In for Beloit College right now.

Why now?

Over the past few years, Beloit has taken the bold step of strengthening its financial position while facing increasing competition for students and highly qualified professors.

The College paid down most of its debt and its leadership drafted the Beloit Action Plan, aimed at making the highly individualized education that sets Beloit apart even more relevant in today’s fast-changing world.

Beloit is now offering more intense student mentoring, a powerful program connecting college to careers, and bigger financial aid packages to help students and their families keep pace with today’s cost of higher education.

The Be All In Campaign 

In February 2020, Beloit publicly launched its extraordinary fundraising campaign: Be All In to raise $54 million in unrestricted support over the next five years.

The response from alumni and friends, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been extraordinary, indeed. As of September, 2021, we have raised $13.5M in unrestricted dollars, an increase of 99 percent in the last 27 months.

What’s Included in the Be All In Campaign?

With your investment, Beloit will be here another 175 years.


The changes are paying off

The college has devised a strong five-year financial plan to address the headwinds. Enrollment growth will take several years, so in the meantime, we are asking our alumni and friends to join us in building the runway on which to taxi, until our numbers and net tuition revenue bounce back. 

The great news? The plan is already working. 

  • We’ve received extensive national attention for our COVID response and success, and our happy and participatory students: we are a success story and still the same adventurous, resilient community as always
  • Our retention rates have averaged 98% in the past two years, a sign of huge student satisfaction
  • We were ranked #5 Most Innovative Colleges by USNews.
  • Giving and engagement are growing. 
  • We enrolled a near-record numbers of freshmen in Fall of 2021

But there is more to be done. For Beloit to fully implement its Action Plan, it must cover existing financial gaps until enrollment and net tuition revenue fully rebound.

Beloit is the oldest continuously operating private college in Wisconsin and, with your investment, we will be here for the next 175 years.
