Donations Make OLLI's Program Vibrant and Affordable

The Osher Life Long Learning Institute of Sedona and Verde Valley is supported by a partnership between the Osher Foundation, Yavapai College, income from dues and fees, and donations from members like you.

Why We Need Your Help

  • The annuity from the Osher Foundation covers about 40% of OLLI expenses
  • Member dues and fees covering the remaining expenses
  • The endowment from the Osher Foundation is fixed
  • Increases in costs as we grow will have to be met from increasing fees if we don’t have other funding.

Please consider making a financial contribution to help OLLI remain a vibrant network of engaged learners with opportunities for everyone in our community.


The OLLI Legacy Fund was established as an endowment fund to complement the Osher Foundation Fund. This fund will serve as an annuity to fund OLLI in Sedona and the Verde Valley.

The OLLI Scholarship Fund provides tuition assistance to those interesting in life-long learning and may find the fees above their means. Your contributions are fully tax deductible as a charitable donation.
