Help us reach our campaign goal of $15,000 for the 2023-24 Year!

What Will Tomorrow’s OLLI Look Like?

You decide. When you make a gift to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Santa Clara University you make a personal investment and commitment that will help shape our future.

The generosity of the Bernard Osher Foundation has helped to establish our OLLI as a premier Institute—but you make it what it is today. Your ideas, your participation, your gifts, all are critical to creating a program that speaks to the needs and interests of our members. If you appreciate how OLLI enriches your life, follow the lead of other members who have given to OLLI@SCU. Your gift does make a difference.

Our goal for this year is to raise $15,000 in donations. Your gifts will directly impact your experience, as additional funds will help to ensure the highest quality of guest speakers and special programming, as well as allow us to provide better service with additional staffing.

The Osher Foundation does require that all OLLI’s fundraise to assure sustainability of their programs around the country, in addition to showing solid and consistent membership numbers; our goal is to retain and/or recruit to a membership of at least 1000. The Osher Foundation fiscal year begins on August 1, and so, with a clean slate we invite you to renew your membership in OLLI@SCU—and to bring a friend! As we go through the year we hope you will also support OLLI as a volunteer and as a donor. We value your participation on all levels for our continued success.
