Give to OLLI

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Stony Brook University has enriched the lives of hundreds of Long Island retirees by providing unique educational programs that allow members to learn, to share, and to connect.  Over the years, OLLI has expanded dramatically — both in size and scope — and this growth requires additional resources to enhance our existing programs as well as to develop new ones. Financial support from members as well as private donors will further the Institute’s goal of sustaining a vibrant learning community for mature adults.

Now is the best time to give. This year, the Bernard Osher Foundation invited Stony Brook to apply for an additional $1 million gift to support our existing OLLI program, in the form of a $950,000 endowment and a $50,000 current use grant.  As part of our eligibility requirements, they set a member donation goal of 10% and $15,000 in 2016. Every dollar is important and is greatly appreciated!

If you believe that OLLI has added enjoyment to your retirement, if its workshops and activities have stimulated your thinking and introduced you to new friends, or if you are someone who understands the value of programs for lifelong learners, please make a contribution NOW to ensure OLLI’s bright future.

There are two funds to which you may contribute:

  • The OLLI Operating Fund supports new initiatives and improvements, maintains special equipment, provides funding for classroom space other than the current dedicated rooms in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Building, finances staffing, and keeps the budget balanced.
  • The OLLI Commemorative Fund provides members with a way to celebrate some of the joyous events in our lives, such as births of grandchildren, special anniversaries, weddings, and graduations. The fund can also be used to memorialize the loss of those who are dear to us. Or, you can contribute to the fund just because.

OLLI at Stony Brook University is a non-profit, so your donation is  100% tax-deductible.
