A Stronger OLLI is a Brighter OLLI

A Brighter is a Stronger OLLI: Paul Moore

Creating a Brighter OLLI…Begins with You!

What will OLLI look like in 3 years, in 5 years, or in 15 years? Recently our members told us that they are (very!) happy with the OLLI of today…that their membership has value, that OLLI is a wise investment. Our vision of OLLI is one of an organization that is stronger, smarter, more connected, and enduring, all coming together to Create a Brighter OLLI.

We’ve defined numerous ways for our members and supporters to help us achieve this goal, better ways to leverage their investment in the organization and help OLLI realize its vision, including our Annual Fund Campaign. We invite you to learn from some of our current supporters about how you can help to strengthen our community, inspire other supporters, and achieve the greatest return on your investment in OLLI.

OLLI Annual Fund Campaign

OLLI at CSU, Chico is funded by a partnership between The Bernard Osher Foundation, CSU, Chico, income from fees, and donations from members like you. Your donations support OLLI’s broad goal of enhancing quality of life and health outcomes for people 50 and better through a rich diversity of class offerings and by making investments in our facilities.

Until a mature lifelong learning endowment fund is generated to substitute the need for annual fundraising, the Institute must raise operating revenue every year. Many members have generously stepped forward to support the financial goals of the program, but annual fundraising is imperative to ensure its continuation and good work.

Your contributions will help OLLI reach the following goals:

• Keep membership fees fair
• Increase OLLI’s educational programs
• Provide membership assistance toward annual fees
• Expand diversity of educational programs and social activities
• Meet current expenses not covered by OLLI membership fees
• Assure adequate staffing, space, equipment, and publicity for programming
• Increase OLLI volunteerism and community presence

You can make a difference!

Whether $25 or $2,500, all contributions are important. You can give online or by mail. Just click one of the buttons above at right to Create a Brighter OLLI today. Thank you!
