We Love Giving Our All to OLLI!
Your donations keep the heart of OLLI ticking!
Dozens of volunteers serve OLLI as instructors, office assistants, event support, fundraisers, and leaders.
Business Sponsorship Program
OLLI serves a vibrant community of adults over 50 who are generally well-educated, active, engaged in life, and have disposable income. The generous gifts of our business sponsors support the cognitive and social benefits of OLLI, help us deliver excellent programming, and enable us to offer fee assistance to members who couldn’t otherwise afford to participate.
Since March 2015, our OLLI chapter has provided a professional quality multimedia system in each of our four major classrooms in Chico – Gordon 1, Gordon 2, Bradley, and Chico New Thought Center.
Each cart includes:
A Legacy of Learning
Your legacy can reflect everything that is most important and 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 contribution from your estate? By creating a legacy, you are making a significant contribution to the future sustainability of the organization that is meaningful to you.
Prime Timers’ Reentry Scholarship
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide scholarship grants to assist non-traditional, re-entry students with tuition expenses. Reentry students are defined as individuals who have experienced an interruption in their education of five or more years and who want to resume their undergraduate university studies to complete their first baccalaureate degree.
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 creates a strong sense of community, and that their quality of life is improved by their participation. Our members see us as a wise investment.
