Make the Gift of Lifelong Learning and Help Your OLLI Thrive

Did you know that your Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a financially self-supporting organization?   While membership fees, tuition and endowment income are our largest sources of revenue, they do not cover our entire operating costs.  It is the generosity of members and donors that allow our OLLI to  grow and ensure classes and events remain affordable and available to all. 

Help with today’s needs

Donations made to OLLI during the year ensure we can continue to provide outstanding and member-driven programming as well as scholarship assistance to those in need.  Gifts to OLLI help make sure our technology is updated, that staff provide a high level of service to our members and instructors and that we have the space and ability to serve lifelong learners like you throughout our community, whatever the economic climate.   

Ways to make a gift now:

  • Log in to the OLLI Registration page with your User Name and Password. Look for the DONATE menu item. Add it to your shopping cart during the purchase process or as a separate transaction and pay by credit card.   
  • Donate anytime by mailing a check payable to CSULB Foundation and addressed to the OLLI office: OLLI@CSULB – HSD 100  1250 Bellflower Blvd.  Long Beach, 90840

Help sustain OLLI’s future needs

One of the most significant and lasting ways you can ensure OLLI is sustained into the future is through a legacy gift.  The most common is a bequest in your will or living trust.  You can leave a “legacy of learning” that grows our endowment funds to support OLLI programs and services for future generations.  By creating a legacy, you are making a lasting difference to the sustainability of the organization that has been so meaningful to you.  What better way to thank the organization that has had an impact on your life, or the life of someone you love, than by making a gift from your estate?  To learn more about making a planned gift to OLLI at CSULB please contact: Barbara White  562.985.8237
