Coachella Valley Giving Day

“California Indian Nations College is a unique opportunity to increase Native student college graduation rates while nurturing the spirit and soul. Course work allows students to take accredited courses for transfer to a four-year college or university in a setting of acceptance and cultural growth.”
~ James C. Ramos (San Manuel Band of Mission Indians)
California State Assemblymember, District 40
For this year’s CV Giving Day, we hope that you consider giving to the California Indian Nations College.
We are an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit, two-year tribal college chartered by the Twenty­-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians. While our home is in the Southern California region, we serve all locations with fully accredited culturally responsive college classes, personalized student support, and community services, that includes and is not limited to a high school equivalency program, tutoring, and individualized advising and mentoring. We do all of this to educate, strengthen, and empower the future of Native American students, tribal communities, and local communities while ensuring student success. All of our classes and programs are 100% donor supported and offered at no cost to our students.

As the emerging Tribal College, we rely solely on the assistance of Native American and Indigenous tribes and the generous donations of individuals and businesses. As an emerging Tribal College, we are not eligible for federal or state funding. Thus, in order to continue to offer these services, advance, and revitalize our languages, cultures, traditions, and values to our students and our communities at minimal or no cost, we need donors and partners like you to join us in advancing Native American education for the next generations to come.
