About


Think back to your days in the dorm… meeting your roommate for the first time… connecting with your future spouse… late nights with friends… solving the world’s problems.

Join alumni, faculty, staff, family, and friends for our 10th annual Giving Day. This year’s theme is Res Hall Rehab, with funds raised going to renovate Whitney Hall. We'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to two anonymous alumni from the 1970s who are starting us off with a $150,000 dollar for dollar match. Whitney is one of the college’s five “64 halls,” and the first to undergo a total makeover as part of our strategy to raise the standards of ALL the residence halls.

With your gift, help us rehab one of the signature gateways to the residential side of campus.


Make your gift, maximize your impact:

Beloit has always been and will always be student-centered, and that begins with the spaces our students call home. Your support this Giving Day helps the next generation of Beloiters, who will also share the gifts that only a Beloit College experience can provide.


How to show your support:

  • Make a gift to help us reach our goal of 1,100 donors. You can choose to make a one-time gift, or set up a recurring gift to give automatically each month. Gifts of all sizes make an impact for our current and future students. 
  • Inspire others by sharing why you give to Beloit and posting words of encouragement and memories of your time at Beloit on social media using #BeloitCollege, #GivingDay, and #ResHallRehab. You can also email your memories (and photos!) to us at alumni@beloit.edu.
  • Create a matching gift or challenge to encourage other Beloiters to give.
  • Check back throughout the day for live updates and watch your gifts grow.
  • If you would like to make a Giving Day donation with a stock gift, IRA distribution, or from a DAF, please see details here, or email gift@beloit.edu.
  • If you prefer writing a check rather than giving online, please send your check to:
    Beloit College
    Box 45
    700 College St.
    Beloit, WI 53511
    *Write Giving Day in the memo space to count toward the day’s total, and add your gift designation:
    - Res Hall Rehab
    - Beloit College Annual Fund (for Financial Aid)
    - Other: __________
