Your Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a financially self-sustaining program that does not receive any state funding. Membership fees and endowment interest are our largest sources of revenue, but they still don't fully cover the operational costs. To keep the program affordable and thriving, we require additional resources.
Your support matters and is greatly appreciated.

Give to the Osher Institute general operating fund. These funds will help bridge the gap between membership revenues and operating costs, and provide flexibility to create new initiatives and programs.
IRA Charitable Rollover
The IRA Charitable Rollover allows retirees age 70-1/2 and older to donate up to $100K tax free from their IRA each year. These assets are excluded from income if the distribution is made directly to a charity.
Ensure that OLLI continues to grow and thrive with a multi-year gift that’s convenient and manageable. Learn more about the Legacy Program
A donation of any amount can be designated in honor or memory of an individual. Memorial gifts are a very thoughtful way to recognize the life and/or unique gifts of someone who has appreciated or exemplified the value of lifelong learning.
Consider leaving a lasting legacy to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute as part of your estate plan. Planned giving can show your appreciation for the impact Osher has had on the quality of your retirement years. Your gift can be designated to support programs of your choice.
Give the gift of Osher membership to a friend you haven't met yet. You're fully aware of how Osher classes enrich your own life. A gift to the Osher Scholarship Fund allows you to give that very personal life-enriching gift to someone who loves to learn, but doesn't have the financial resources to participate.
