A Special Thanks

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Temple University's Center City Campus, is pleased to announce its recent gift of one million dollars from the Bernard Osher Foundation. This is the second such gift that OLLI at Temple has received from the Osher Foundation in four years. We are so delighted and grateful to the Osher Foundation for their ongoing support and encouragement. They have been extraordinarily generous and helpful to our program and we will be forever appreciative of Bernard and Barbro Osher and the wonderful staff of the foundation, in particular, Senior Program Officer David Blazevich and the President, Mary Bitterman.
