Donate to OLLI

Why OLLI Members Give

“Donating to OLLI is like making a sound investment in my own future, as well as a way of saying, ‘thank you’ for the wide variety of experiences OLLI continually offers. OLLI has become an amazing part of my life.” — Judy H.

“OLLI is a shining light in my life. Attend just one class and you’ll see what I mean. I give because OLLI has earned my support many times over.”—Richard W.

The OLLI Annual Fund – Why Is It Needed?

Membership fees cover only a portion of the amount OLLI needs to operate. Your contribution means that yearly membership dues can be kept low as we continue to bring you the high-quality educational program you’ve come to expect from OLLI. The annual fund accounts for 7% of the overall budget, and plays an important role in keeping the budget in balance. In addition, it meets a key requirement of our endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation that we engage in fund-raising efforts each year.

The Perfect Time to Give

Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have given so generously in response to our fall 2018 donation letter. For those still considering a gift, we would like to challenge you to make the same investment in our institute that the Osher Foundation and other OLLI members have done by asking you to contribute to the institute that has become a large part of the lives of individuals in our community. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by August 1, 2019 with fifty percent of our membership contributing.
