Donate to OLLI-UW

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Washington (OLLI-UW) is a financially self-sustaining program that receives no state funding. Fees paid by our members and interest from our endowment finance a portion — but not all — of OLLI-UW's programming costs. 

Your support matters — it is vital to a growing, thriving institute. When you make a contribution to OLLI-UW, you join a special group of people whose financial support keeps our programming vibrant. Gifts to OLLI-UW help us maintain low membership and course fees and enable us to continue to offer outstanding learning opportunities to our members. 

A gift of any size is the gift of knowledge. Thank you for your support!
