Help OLLI thrive

Did you know that 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 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 provide 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 members and instructors and that we have the ability to serve lifelong learners like you in our community, whatever the economic climate.   

Ways to make a gift now:

  • Log in to the OLLI Registration site with your User Name and Password. Look for the DONATE menu. Add it to your checkout during the purchase process or as a separate transaction and pay by credit card.  
  • In order to make a recurring donation to OLLI, go to  CSULB/CHHS/OLLI  website to pay by credit card, and select Osher Lifelong Learning Institute from the list.

Help sustain OLLI’s future needs with a Legacy Gift

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  e-mail  or call 562.985.8237 . You can reach CSULB Gift Planning at (562) 985-5489, by email at Gift Planning  or through “Contact Us” on our web site,

Our major goal is to build a Fund for Sustaining the program that means so much to so many.  Gifts designated for this purpose would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to those who have already donated!
