Through FSU’s Great Give, members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute have the opportunity and the challenge to give back to an organization that is helping shape their todays and their tomorrows.
In the words of one enthusiastic member and generous contributor, “OLLI has been a godsend to me. To say OLLI has afforded me an active and vital lifestyle would be a gross understatement. OLLI is just what a retiree like me needs and wants.”
OLLI needs the help of all of its members to sustain and build excellence.
One crucial part of this effort is improving our learning facilities, including upgrading the Broad Auditorium and its audio-visual equipment, and future distance learning opportunities.
Member contributions also support lectures throughout the year, give special focus on academic programs, fund scholarships for FSU students and OLLI students in need, and offer events beyond the regular agenda of classes, activities, and travel.
Have an idea how your contribution could help OLLI? Give us a call at (850) 644-3520.
