“Be All In,” Beloit’s five-year, $50-million fundraising campaign, launched weeks before COVID-19 emerged as a global pandemic; it was certainly not how the college anticipated the campaign’s debut. Yet Beloiters have shown incredible support through the challenges presented by the pandemic, helping create the success story of Year One fundraising.

As the campaign enters Year Two, it will ensure a robust future for Beloit College by raising operating dollars to support enrollment, high retention, access to all, and student experiences. The goal includes an average of $10 million each year for financial aid and career programs and investments in student success and enrollment/retention.

Be All In: The Campaign for Beloit College

Thank you to all those who made Year One a success! We are resilient. We are All In. We are Beloiters.

Thank you for continuing to make a Beloit College education possible, even in these hard times. My daughter is a proud 2016 Beloit graduate and I am a proud Beloit parent. Beloit supported us when we needed it and I will always support the college.

— Rick Kehne P16
