Make a Gift to the Osher Excellence Fund

Annual fundraising plays an important part in the Osher Institute. The Osher Excellence Fund supports our efforts to attract and retain top-notch faculty and presenters, offer high-quality programming, provide well-appointed classroom space, and keep membership and course fees low. Member and community support of the Excellence Fund is instrumental to our ongoing success.

Leave a Legacy for Lifelong Learning

A planned gift is a great way to support the Osher Institute without impacting your current finances. A legacy or planned gift is a gift for the future that will support the longevity of the Osher Institute, allowing it to be available for lifelong learners in our community for years to come. Learn more about including the Institute in your estate plan by reading our Leave a Legacy brochure (PDF).

The Bernard Osher Foundation

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Boise State is endowed by The Bernard Osher Foundation. This support, combined with annual contributions made by members and community underwriters, support from the University, and revenue from membership and course fees, helps the Institute run smoothly. We are fortunate to be among a cadre of universities and colleges throughout the country to have the support of the Bernard Osher Foundation.
