The OLLI at UK program is supported by generous gifts from members and friends of the program. Gifts go exclusively to the OLLI at UK and provide support for programming, OLLI travel, socials, classroom rental fees, special events, and keeping membership and course fees low.  

There are several creative ways to give to the OLLI at UK. Opportunities range from cash gifts which cover yearly operating expenses to endowments.  

  • Mail a check. Send a check made payable to “OLLI at UK” to UK Ligon House, 658 S. Limestone, Lexington, KY 40506-0442. 
  •  Make a Gift Tax-Free with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as the OLLI at UK without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit. This gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short. Click here for additional information about giving through an IRA charitable rollover.
