Although OLLI@UGA has received an endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation, we still need your help to keep OLLI@UGA thriving. Why?

We can only use the investment income from the endowment, not the principal. As our organization grows, our costs for staff, printing, mailing and computer support will continue to increase. Your donations will help us cover these costs so that we can keep membership dues and class fees low. This will enable all interested seniors to participate and keep our organization growing.

Our primary goal is sustainability. By donating whatever you can afford, you will help OLLI@UGA to continue growing and improving in such areas as development of new programs, the enhancement of existing ones, and the eventual hiring of additional staff when needed. Some options for donating are:

    • ANNUAL CAMPAIGN – The financial mainstay of almost every successful non-profit organization, an annual fund allows an organization the fiscal security it needs to carry out its mission. OLLI@UGA is no exception.
    • LEAVE A LEGACY – Offers OLLI@UGA members a planned giving program designed to provide a variety of endowment options. There is a wide array possibilities and a confidential consultation is recommended with our UGA Planned Giving Specialist and OLLI@UGA member Melinda Thomas ( or 706-542-8869).
    • SPECIAL EVENTS – Several Special Events will be planned throughout the year.  You can support these events by attending and volunteering.
    • MEMORIAL GIFTS – A donation can be made to OLLI@UGA to remember someone or to honor them.

Remember: OLLI@UGA is a non-profit organization and your donation is 100% tax deductible. If you want to make a donation, comment, or have a concern, we’d love to hear from you. You may email us at or phone us Monday through Friday, 8:00-5:00 at 706.542.7715.
