Giving to the Osher Institute

Lifelong learning is not a pastime. It is a way of life that contributes to the well-being of our members, our university and our community. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Richmond is excited to be celebrating its 17th year providing our members a continuing university home. Celebrate with us by making a gift to our Osher Annual Fund Campaign!

Make Your Gift to Osher

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. Corporate matches are accepted. And for those aged 70½ and above, Qualified Charitable Distributions from an IRA are another great way to give!
