To direct donations to OLLI at UVa:

Go to using the web browser on your computer or mobile device.

Log in using the same username and password you use to access your regular Amazon account.

  • Select OLLI as your designated charity by “picking your own charitable organization” and search for “Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Virginia.”  (You only have to complete this step once.)
  • Make sure to select Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA.

Your purchases will then support OLLI, but only when you shop at, their “portal” for charitable giving. Again, this costs you absolutely nothing. The donation is being made by the AmazonSmile Foundation. You are just selecting OLLI at UVA as the recipient. Happy shopping, and thank you!
