Annual appeal

Have you thought about the extra benefits that OLLI brings to your life beyond the enriching classes?

Research shows that some of the benefits of remaining socially active include the possibility of living longer, lowering your risk of dementia, and enjoying better physical and mental health. Aren’t these all great reasons for investing in yourself through OLLI?

Your generous donations work today, accounting for 7% of  the OLLI operating budget and funding OLLI scholarships. They also protect OLLI's tomorrow by building the "rainy day fund" to ensure OLLI’s future.

An annual appeal letter will be mailed to your home in mid-November. Please consider the impact that OLLI has made on your life or the life of a friend and mail your check in the envelope provided. Or, charge by credit card here.

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.
