Welcome to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UNR! Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, OLLI at UNR is a spirited community of seasoned adults who gather to explore new interests, share ideas and make friends. Distinguished professors and knowledgeable instructors volunteer their expertise in programs and activities spanning such diverse topics as art, current events, economics, health, history, literature, music, science, travel, theatre and writing. There are no grades, no tests and no pressure at OLLI. We welcome every adult learner regardless of previous educational experience. An annual membership fee of $85 covers attendance at as many programs and activities you choose to attend, including: * 150+ learning experiences every semester - in person at our Moana Campus - online via Zoom - outdoors throughout the Reno-Tahoe area * social and cultural programs * special events, field trips and a host of other enriching activities. Join us at OLLI: its the biggest little secret in the Biggest Little City. > Get Involved > Donate


OLLI is a member-powered organization in many ways. In addition to enrollment fees and grants from the Osher Foundation, we are also fueled by the generous financial support of members and friends who help keep our fees low so that we can continue to enrich the lives of all lifelong learners.

When you make a gift to the OLLI at UNR, you are helping OLLI both now and for the future. You strengthen lifelong learning in northern Nevada, you enrich your own life and you make a positive impact on the lives of many others.

If you appreciate how OLLI makes a difference in your life, please consider following the lead of the many past and current members who contribute to OLLI every year through established scholarship funds, supporting specific OLLI programs, or by including OLLI in their planned giving.

Ways to Give:

What will tomorrow's OLLI look like? You decide. When you make a planned gift to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Nevada, Reno through OLLI Legacy Giving, you integrate your financial goals with your personal goals to help shape the future.

A planned gift is an ideal way for people who would like to help OLLI’s long-term sustainability, but can’t right now. Just a few sentences in your will or trust, or a simple change to your IRA or life insurance beneficiary statement may be all that is required. Please be sure to let us know of your planned giving intentions because it helps OLLI demonstrate our long-term sustainability to foundations and other larger funders. 

For more information or help with any donation, no matter the timing or the amount, please contact the OLLI office at or (775) 784-8053.
