Course Detail: GIVEBK - Giving Back to OLLI

The following funds facilitate and enhance OLLI operations.

The OLLI Gift Fund enables OLLI to maintain an affordable program for its members and provides the flexibility for OLLI to adjust to unexpected needs and the ever-changing environment in adult lifelong learning. Recent examples of gifts to this fund include one gift of $1,000 unrestricted and another of $2,000 earmarked for OLLI's membership marketing efforts.

The Peter Peacock Memorial Scholarship Fund was initiated by OLLI member Dorothy Peacock in memory of her late husband. Its purpose is to provide scholarships for individuals who want to participate in OLLI but require financial assistance to do so. Special events can be marked by donations to this fund. For example, the family of a charter member of OLLI donated 80 membership scholarships in honor of her 80th birthday. As well as honoring an individual, gifts like this strengthen OLLI's outreach ability.

The Dennis James Travel Memorial Fund was endowed through a $50,000 bequest. Interest from the fund provides transportation for an OLLI travel opportunity every other year. Through the gift, more than 100 people have traveled to see the kinds of things Dennis loved - like architecture. If you enjoy learning through travel, consider donating to this fund so others can share your passion.
