    On April 26th, California Indian Nations College (CINC or the College) Board of Trustees launched a $3,000,000 Campaign to keep the College open.  We are targeting this in three phases.  Phase 1 ends December 31, 2021.  The Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians pledged $500,000 towards this goal and requests that others, particularly tribes that have students enrolled in tribal colleges, to match this amount.  Remember, no amount is too great or too small.  Every contribution supports the development and continued operations of this College.  With your support, we can all help to strengthen the road for CINC to attain accreditation and become the first fully accredited two-year degree offering Tribal College in the state of California.
