Make a Gift

Give the gift of learning — donate to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, San Francisco State

Like other Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes nationwide, our OLLI at SF State is supported in part by an endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation, annual membership fees and class tuition. However, these revenue sources do not cover all of the costs needed for our OLLI to grow and thrive, and fundraising is an expectation of all OLLI’s. Donations to our OLLI are essential to our overall financial stability and sustainability.

Individual donations from our members and non-members who believe in the enrichment lifelong learning provides for adults in San Francisco and the Bay Area help to keep our program thriving.

Why your gift matters

Your financial support, in any amount, will help ensure that OLLI can continue to meet the needs of our members with dedicated staff support for all of our online offerings, highly qualified and engaging instructors, and scholarships so our programs are not out of reach for anyone interested. A tax-deductible gift of any size is the gift of knowledge.

Checks may be made out to UCorp/OLLI

and mailed to:
