  • The OLLI Scholarship Fund - pays membership dues for a qualifying individual to receive OLLI membership at reduced or no cost.
  • The OLLI Endowment Fund - helps to assure the continuance of the organization. OLLI can use only a percentage of the income generated from this fund.

Ways to Give

  • Become a Sustaining Donor – Your monthly gift to OLLI’s general fund provides a convenient way to give, while providing a reliable source of income for OLLI. Your gift can be automatically deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card monthly. You can adjust your gift amount at any time you wish. Whether it’s $5.00 or $50.00 per month or more, every gift keeps OLLI strong. Gifts of $85 or more per month may qualify for OLLI’s $100K Club. Call Jascenna Haislet, Director of OLLI at WVU, at 304-293-4780 to become an OLLI Sustaining Donor today.
  • Planned Giving
    • A future gift made through your estate plans can also support OLLI.
    • If you are interested in including a gift in your will, please see our Estate Planning Form to find the language needed to accomplish that.
    • Making the WVU Foundation the beneficiary of your tax-deferred retirement account, life insurance or annuity policy to support OLLI is also a good option.  
    • Setting up a gift that will supplement your retirement income, yield a current income tax deduction, and benefit OLLI in the future can make a lot of sense too.
  • In Honor/In Memory - A gift in honor or in memory of a loved one can be a special way to remember that person and help OLLI too.
  • Stocks and Bonds - A gift of stocks or bonds allows you to donate appreciated assets and avoid the tax on the capital gain.
