Giving to the Osher Institute

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

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. We are also thankful for Osher members who made monetary gifts 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 will count toward the annual giving fund raiser. Corporate matches are accepted.

Why Give to the Osher Institute?

Marshall Ervine photo“I give to the Osher Institute because generations to come need to have access to programs that keep them mentally, physically and socially active. Folks need something fun and meaningful to do.”
