Your Support Matters!   ...Today and in the Future!

OLLI at GSC is primarily supported by membership dues, class fees, annual interest income from an endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation and in-kind contributions from Granite State College (including classroom and office space, administrative, financial, technical and marketing support). Although our organization is fiscally healthy today, adequate reserves are critical to organizational sustainability. Contributions from members, corporate sponsors and the community, regardless of size, are significant and appreciated.
