We need your help

...........................

Do you enjoy the programs offered by OLLI? Do you want to keep this wonderful program fresh and exciting?

Please consider donating

to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at USCB.

We Need You! OLLI succeeds because of the contributions of a number of wonderful volunteers, but in addition we rely on funding to cover our operational costs. By state law, our program must be self-sustaining. We receive no monetary support from USCB or any governmental entity. We depend upon membership and term fees, the generosity of the Bernard Osher Foundation, and donations from caring and concerned individuals and companies. How do we use these funds? •

Funding has made possible a major expansion of our program over the past few years. In three years, OLLI membership has grown by 95%, and the number of classes that we offer has tripled. This trend continues -- we will offer well over 400 classes this year (which will be a new record.) Your donations help keep our offerings new, intellectually challenging, and exciting.

Funding also makes possible our annual Distinguished Lecture Symposium, as well as our Special Lecture Series. These series bring renowned scholars to this area. We work hard to make these lectures timely and intellectually stimulating, and we are already working on these special lectures for the coming year.

• •

And of course, these funds cover our everyday operational expenses—the infrastructure that makes all of this possible- e.g. to lease classroom space at Pineland Station on Hilton Head, advertising, promotional material to attract new instructors and members, staff salaries, equipment, etc.

Please consider a donation to help OLLI continue to grow and thrive. Use the membership application or registration form to donate. It is as simple as that!

Thank you for your help— Your donation will make a difference.
