Give to OLLI

OLLI-USF Annual Fund

We cherish and appreciate our donors – and are particularly grateful to them during this very challenging pendemic period.
Your gifts – no matter the size – keep OLLI-USF keep on going and growing. Gifts are put to work immediately, helping to fund classroom technology, provide scholarships, and develop and recognize the many volunteers that make OLLI-USF great! You can even honor someone you love by making a gift in their name.

Give a gift on our secure site today.

Or mail a check, payable to USF Foundation to:
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute 
University of South Florida
4202 E. Fowler Ave., NEC 116

Other Ways You Can Support OLLI-USF

Roll Over Your IRA for Good!

An IRA charitable rollover gift can benefit both you and OLLI-USF! By taking a distribution from your IRA this year, you will likely pay more in taxes and may even reach a higher tax bracket. Rolling over part of your IRA's "required minimum distribution" or "RMD" to USF to benefit OLLI can help reduce your tax bill while supporting our cause. Contact your IRA administrator to get started with your gift. While you will not receive an income tax deduction, you will not pay taxes on any distributions made to USF. 

Please inform us of your plans so we can use your gift for the programs that mean most to you.
