The Bernard Osher Foundation

The Bernard Osher Foundation is a private organization that supports the arts and higher education with the goal of enhancing quality of life. Successful businessman and philanthropist Bernard Osher established the fund in 1977. It has given institutions and organizations in the fields of higher education and the arts more than $500 million in grants, with an emphasis on initiatives that support access to the arts for people of all ages and backgrounds and lifelong learning. Additionally, the organization funds studies on integrative medicine and brain health.

The Bernard Osher Foundation funds the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute as they offer educational opportunities to persons 50 and older. These courses, which encourage lifelong learning and personal development, are frequently taught by retired professors and other subject-matter authorities. The Osher Foundation helps make these educational opportunities accessible to individuals 50 and older in local communities by providing financial support to OLLI programs at colleges and universities around the United States.
