My husband Mike and I donate to OLLI because we know that fees from membership covers just half of OLLI’s total annual expenses. We also know that OLLI exists because people like us donate time and money.
We’re happy to do it because we know that by sharing our time and experience, we are contributing to the overall well-being of everyone involved, including ourselves. Keeping OLLI viable is not only a gift to existing members, but it guarantees that future generations will be able to engage in the lifelong learning opportunities and services OLLI provides.
In some ways, OLLI is like one-stop shopping. The amazing variety of courses and interests offered give a person the chance to pursue many different interests designed with the needs of older adults in mind – all in one place.
We volunteer to teach for OLLI because it provides a social context that is nearly impossible to replicate elsewhere in town.
On this #GivingTuesday, whether you sign up to make a monthly, sustaining gift or make 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 insure its future.
While the past 20 months has been challenging, OLLI has contributed a happy environment for its members. We’re delighted to give both our money and our energy to OLLI. We’re hoping that, with your help, OLLI can continue to enrich our lives through lasting connections.
