OLLI at Auburn is about more than just education, it's about community. It's where you can explore ideas and try something new while meeting new people and making friends. To help strengthen that community, we want to build a campus where we can all be together.

Welcome to the future of OLLI.

Instead of rushing from Sunny Slope to Pebble Hill, you could walk from one large classroom to another. Instead of navigating an uneven gravel parking lot, you would enjoy a larger, paved parking. Instead of renting space all over town, we could open doors between classrooms to create one large event space.

A new OLLI building would be comprised of two 40-seat classrooms that can be combined into a single space for large classes and socials, a 25-seat classroom, an outdoor classroom, a catering and demonstration kitchen, and community areas where we can visit with friends before and after class. A larger, paved parking lot and second entrance allow for easier access to the whole campus.

We've reached 25% of our goal!

Keep the momentum going. Make your pledge today!

“Pledging financial support for a designated OLLI building was easy. OLLI is such an important part of our lives, and it will be great for us all to be together in one place. The teaching, learning, hiking, and social interactions are invaluable!”

Pyramid of Giving

Every pyramid is built on a strong foundation. A pyramid of giving starts with a broad base of donors willing to pledge $5,000 or more over the next 5 years.
