Do you Dream a Little Dream, Dare to Dream, or Dream Big?? Whatever your dream is, you can help us fulfill the dreams of someone in hospice care by donating to our BeachFunder Campaign. We've fulfilled dreams including a wedding commemorating a 60+ year marriage, a romantic home dinner for a man with terminal cancer, and a yard and garden refresh for someone to enjoy.

Support the CSULB Gerontology DreamCatchers in creating precious end-of-life memories for older adults. Your contribution allows us to continue serving the aging community through acts of service and memory-making for them and their family.

Week of Welcome - Jan. 30 - 31 | 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Central Quad and Speaker’s Platform
