For more than 30 years, De Colores has taken LMU students on a weekend service trip to Tijuana. These social justice and cultural immersion trips allow students to learn firsthand about issues of poverty and immigration by helping build a house and sharing meals with community residents. Most of the homes built during these trips are not furnished. A gift to De Colores would help supply the furnishings for a house built during one of eight De Colores trips a year.

Loyola Rugby at LMU is a proud and distinguished club that has been playing at Loyola Marymount University for close to 60 years. Their current goalpost pads, sideline markers and flags were purchased almost 20 years ago and have held up, but are coming to the end of their useful lifespan. Keep this long-running program looking its best and help Loyola Rugby at LMU purchase items needed to refresh their look and equipment for their field.

Diabetes is a global epidemic affecting hundreds of millions of people. Patients must measure their blood glucose levels daily through painful, invasive methods with a needle. Electrical engineering students at LMU working on a capstone project are trying to develop a noninvasive way to detect glucose concentration. Their research shows that they need a supercontinuum laser to fully develop this meter and hopefully make the world’s first noninvasive glucose meter.
