Donate to Osher Lifelong Learning at UNM

OLLI at UNM charges less than $30 for many of its classes and free activities abound. Additional member benefits and inclusion in the Osher community are included in the $20 annual membership fee. To keep our program accessible to all and our fees low, we encourage contributions from people like you.


Be part of our 20% for $20,000

Osher ChileThe Bernard Osher Foundation has challenged OLLI at UNM to raise $20,000 from at least 240 members. Once this is accomplished, OLLI at UNM is eligible to apply for a second million dollar endowment.

So far, 151 loyal members have contributed over $16,570 bringing us a quarter of the way to our goal of $20,000 before December 31, 2014.

We ask each of you as OLLI at UNM members and friends to join us in this challenge. Please make a donation at whatever level you’re able, so we may achieve our goals.

The requirements from the Bernard Osher Foundation arose due to the substantial downturn in the market in 2011 and 2012. During these two years, the OLLI at UNM endowment and other OLLI endowments at institutes around the country didn’t make a program disbursement. To provide a cushion for such future financial downturns, member support is necessary.

We know you value OLLI. Join us and make a gift to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of New Mexico. Your tax-deductible gift sustains a vibrant learning community now and in the future.
