The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a non-profit program that is self-support and receives no state funding. Your support matters and planned gifts can be very helpful to ensuring the continued success of our program.
Please consider giving to the Osher program at Cal State University San Marcos and help sustain this vibrant community of learners now and in the future. There are many ways to give and your donations are tax-deductible, secure and private. Learn more about giving options.
DONATE IN HONOR OR MEMORY OF A FRIEND OR LOVED ONE: the perfect gift for any occasion! Your recipient will be notified by a beautiful
card from Osher with your personal message inside. Please contact our office directly at 760-750-8613 for this option.
OSHER MEMBER SCHOLARSHIPS: enable others to experience Osher.
INSTRUCTOR SUPPORT: ensure that Osher can recruit and retain highly-qualified faculty.
INSTITUTE OPERATIONS: improve the overall quality of Osher through program development, community outreach and promotion.
ENDOWED FUND: An endowed gift is one that lasts a lifetime. Creating an endowment in your name (or a loved one’s name) is similar to placing funds in a savings account and providing the Institute with the interest from your gift. Your investment (or principal) is never expended, but the income from the gift is used to assure a lifetime of support for the program.
PLANNING YOUR ESTATE? Consider leaving a gift in your will or bequest, gifting through a charitable trust, a gift annuity, life insurance, pension plan, IRA or through real estate.
Irene Michelson recently celebrated her 75th birthday and allowed Osher to be a part of her big day. Thank Irene, for spreading your love of Osher (and chocolate) to your friends and family!
Osher's lifetime member Virginia Holten donates every year. She recently gave in honor of Jimmy Moore and Ed Argelander. Both of whom remain in our hearts and our memories. Thank you, Virginia!
