Give to OLLI at UM & Make a Difference

OLLI at UM, as part of the University of Miami’s Division of Continuing & International Education, is a unique community of members aged 50 and over dedicated to intellectual enrichment and the many other benefits that lifelong learning brings. Annual membership fees are low, and courses are on a “pay as you go” system, making the learning opportunities accessible to a wide range of people.

Membership fees at OLLI cover our administrative and a portion of our operating costs. The University of Miami generously supports OLLI with facilities and services; however, as OLLI continues to grow and improve, we need further support from our community of members and friends.

Membership Growth

As our membership grows and curricular offerings continue to higher levels of excellence, our physical facility is stretched to its limits. Your donation to the University of Miami’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute will help keep tuition and fees low, help attract high-quality instructors and lecturers, and help fund enhancements to the learning experience here at OLLI at UM. Some projects to be undertaken include technology upgrades, improvements to and expansion of the classrooms and scholarships for those who would otherwise be unable to attend OLLI classes. Specifically, your gift may be used for:

  • Classroom/Facility Enhancements: Your gift will help fund such classroom and building improvements as the purchase of comfortable classroom chairs and new classroom tables.
  • Technology Updates: To improve the learner experience,  OLLI needs new audio visual equipment and Smart TV monitors, a new digital audio system, and new computers for classrooms.
  • OLLI Scholarship Fund: Your gift to the OLLI Scholarship Fund allows members who otherwise would not be able to attend OLLI classes to experience and enjoy the dynamic lifelong learning experience here at OLLI at UM.

A gift of any amount to OLLI will make a difference in the experiences, environment and curriculum OLLI can offer.

Take the opportunity to make a donation today. Your support will help ensure that these program enhancements will be funded, making OLLI at UM the absolute best it can be.
