Giving to the Osher Institute

Today is a great day to make a financial gift to support your Osher and its members!

Make a Gift Online to the Osher Institute

You may give a one-time or monthly recurring gift to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Richmond. You may donate anonymously, if you wish, and you may make your gift as a tribute in honor or in memory of another person. A one-time gift of $5 or greater, or a recurring gift of $1 or greater, will count toward the annual giving fund raiser. Corporate matches are accepted.

The Osher Institute at the University of Richmond is as strong as it is today because of our members and supporters. We appreciate everything our members do each day as you participate with us, volunteer for us, lead for us, and promote us.

At this time, our Osher Institute is doing well with strong membership and course participation. However, funding is needed to ensure long-term continued success and stability, and to make sure the quality classes and social opportunities members enjoy today remain available tomorrow.

Each year, membership dues and course fees cover 60-70% of Osher’s costs. Osher relies on investment income from the Bernard Osher Foundation’s original endowment to cover the remaining costs. However, this income is limited and fluctuates.

Therefore, we are engaged in an annual giving fundraiser in partnership with the University’s Office of Annual Giving.

Please make a gift, as you are able.

Dollars add up and participation matters. All gifts are tax deductible, and all money raised directly benefits Osher and its members. The choice is yours — a one-time gift or a recurring monthly gift.

Our goal for the 2017 annual gift fundraiser is $10,000! Let’s do this! Together, we can create a stronger Osher!
