“One of the biggest advantages of giving to the Beloit Fund during the Classic. Daring. Life-Changing. campaign is that your gift has an immediate impact on the College and its daily operations,” says Don Carson’71, campaign vice-chair and chair of the Beloit Fund Committee. “Increased support of the Beloit Fund indicates support for the campaign goals of capital improvements, endowment support, and annual giving. It all adds up to financial flexibility that allows the College to respond to needs and opportunities as they arise.”
A 30-year contributor to the Beloit annual fund, Carson has dedicated a significant portion of his own financial support and volunteer time to convincing others that regular giving to the Beloit Fund has an impact far beyond the size of the gift.
“Alumni participation in giving is a key indicator to many corporations and foundations whose support we seek and in school ranking formulations. This support allows us to attract top-notch faculty, provide competitive compensation packages, and maintain the physical plant,” says Carson, who reminds donors that they can designate their gift within the Beloit Fund to an area that is of most interest.
