OLLI Development Committee: Report to the Board
The Development Committee met on November 18, 2011.

Kelli Ritrievi, USF Foundation Senior Director of Gift Planning, and Marion Yongue, talked with us about planned giving. Our questions and concerns revolved around what a planned gift can be and how the Foundation tracks these gifts so that OLLI-USF is credited for our member gifts. Kelli assured us that OLLI member gifts would be for the sole use of OLLI. The Foundation would handle all of preparation and documentation required.

Dr. Susan McManus has agreed to be our Third Annual Distinguished Lecturer. She will speak in the Vincent A. Stabile Research Building at the Moffitt Cancer Center on February 21 at 1:00 PM. A notice is in the latest Evergreen, and we are hoping to get a large attendance because of her wide-spread reputation and 2012 being an election year.

We are working on refining and updating some of the language in the Annual Fund letter that will go out in February, 2012. We plan to have it ready along with the donation card in a couple weeks to give time for printing.

We are not meeting in December. The next meeting will be on January 20, 2012, at 10:00 AM in the OLLI offices.
