Support the Friends of OLLI  Fund

Help OLLI@BSC continue to foster intellectual curiosity and love of learning for active seniors!  With your support, we can work towards our goal of becoming financially self-sufficient, while continuing to provide affordable, high-quality programming to all our members.
Every gift, no matter the size, is an investment in the future of OLLI’s vibrant program. 


Tuition and earnings from investments will allow OLLI @ BSC to maintain a balanced budget.  However, this income only supports our basic operation and we rely on fundraising and donations to:

  • Keep membership affordable

  • Strengthen academic, cultural and social programs

  • Upgrade technology

  • Secure our long-term financial future

All donations are dedicated to enriching the life-long learning experience of OLLI@BSC. 

To donate by check, mail to:
The BSC Foundation
PO BOX 5587
Bismarck, ND 58506-5587
Note: Friends of OLLI@BSC
