Giving to OLLI
OLLI at BU is building on the huge success from its first fundraising effort, the 2013 OLLI Challenge.
We have big plans for the future.
- Buy a second 14-passenger shuttle bus so everyone who takes a local Learning Trip can enjoy a comfortable ride. A shuttle bus will cost about $66,000.
- Provide ongoing maintenance for the shuttle buses and begin building a reserve for future replacements.
- Continue supporting free Sunday Cinema and OLLI Lectures.
- Invest 5% of total gifts into the OLLI endowment fund.
Another $1 million?
The Bernard Osher Foundation staff tell us that they are delighted with our efforts, and your continued giving will allow OLLI to request a second $1 million endowment gift from The Bernard Osher Foundation.
Your gift will help!
Give to OLLI by the end of 2013 and your donation will be doubled through a matching gift from an anonymous donor, who has pledged up to $25,000 for OLLI. Your donation will help us secure this match, improve OLLI, and demonstrate to The Bernard Osher Foundation that our members support their OLLI with their participation AND their gifts. OLLI is one of the few charitable organizations in which your donation benefits YOU now and sustains OLLI for future members.
