2018 Osher Annual Fund Report

The Osher Institute at the University of Richmond raised over $23,000 in its 2018 annual fund campaign, surpassing its fundraising goal of $15,000 and its participation goal of 150 donors! Thank you to our members who have supported us this year with their time, talent and treasures.

Funds raised in this annual campaign are used to support Osher programming and to create financial flexibility for special events, speakers, and need-based assistance. Funds have also helped the Osher Institute keep membership and course fees flat for the 2018-2019 fiscal year, while providing long-term stability to address any unexpected market fluctuations.

The annual fund campaign is supported in part through a capacity-building grant the Institute received from The Bernard Osher Foundation. The grant provides funds to local Osher Institutes for developing long-term sustainability and growth to ensure they remain strong and support the learning needs of their members.
