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!

Endowed gifts are invested in the UW's Consolidated Endowment Fund, which combines assets for investment purposes. This means your gift has the potential to grow substantially over time. To find out about more about providing endowed support, contact the Office of Endowment Stewardship at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (206) 685-1980 or toll-free at (877) 894-4387.
