How Much Does OLLI Mean to You?

Over thirty years ago, a small group of friends came together to form a lifelong learning program that would later become OLLI. In their founding charter, they expressed their commitment to building a volunteer-driven program in which older adults could keep learning and stay connected.

Today we are an organization of 1,000+ members age 50 and better, who enjoy more than 300 volunteer instructor-led classes, seminar series, and seasonal social events annually on a wide-variety of subjects. The financial support of our members, community partners, and others who believe in the importance of our organization ensures that OLLI can continue to serve adults in Chico and surrounding communities and allow us to expand the variety of programming that makes the OLLI experience rich.

Whether you sign up to make a sustaining gift or a one-time contribution, we hope you’ll show how much OLLI means to you by pledging a gift consistent with your means. All donations, large and small, impact the OLLI of today and help ensure our future.

Become a Sustaining Member: Ongoing monthly donations provide dependable support to sustain our program.
Become a CSU, Chico Tower Society Member: Leadership gifts of $1,500+ advance our impact and are recognized with special donor benefits.
Become a Legacy Donor: A bequest helps ensure our sustainability long into the future.
Make a One-Time Donation: Every dollar helps. Every dollar counts. Every dollar is appreciated!
