Unprecedented Giving Day Coming May 12
May 12 will mark Beloit’s seventh annual Giving Day, which devotes 24 hours to raising funds for the Beloit College Annual Fund, 100 percent of which supports financial aid. This year, however, will be unlike any that have come before.
This year’s Giving Day has a special theme: “Be All In: The Next 175 Years,” which celebrates the college’s future in the context of its anniversary milestone, and it features an unprecedented matching gift announced in advance.
The Beloit College board of trustees has collectively pledged $580,000 in a dollar-to-dollar match toward a $1 million fundraising goal. Members of the alumni board, the class of 1970, and others plan to announce additional challenge gifts on Giving Day.
To participate, visit beloit.edu on May 12, check your email, and follow Beloit’s social media channels to give, challenge others to contribute, and watch the spirit of generosity toward Beloit expand around the world.
Beloit is in year two of its “Be All In” fundraising campaign with a goal of raising $50 million over five years.
