OLLI Development Team at Work

OLLI Member Donors

“Success for an Osher Institute relies on a culture of giving – modeled generously by The Bernard Osher Foundation",  Steve Thaxton, Director National Resource Center for Osher Lifelong learning Institutes. Your OLLI Development Team has planned two, major, fund raising appeals in Fiscal Year 2021; one in fall 2020 and another in spring 2021.  The fall 2020 fundraiser is currently underway. Members’ contributions promote member investment that in turn promotes program growth and long-term sustainability.

By giving, OLLI members are both investing in themselves and the future of OLLI. Donations in any amount work both immediately to maintain affordable membership dues and class fees, supplement scholarship funds and build the program’s capacity to provide excellent member service for years to come.

“The long-term sustainability of OLLI at Granite State College calls for contributions from members who see that benefits from their involvement far exceed course and membership fees. Consider what OLLI means to you. How does it impact your life? And then consider what can you do for OLLI?” - Sandy O’Neill, class of 2013. Please Help OLLI achieve 100%,  member participation. Demonstrate your support for OLLI and the example set by the Bernard Osher Foundation. Your donation  will go directly to OLLI and it could be  tax deductible .
