Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, Southern California

Charitable Giving

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians is a significant member of the Valley's philanthropic community, donating millions of dollars over the years to support organizations that help children, people with illness and disabilities and the elderly. In addition, the Tribe has made it a strong priority to support local public safety efforts and programs.

The Tribe continues a tradition of sharing through contributions to charities that provide much-needed services throughout the Coachella Valley.

"Our Tribe knows what it means to struggle," Chairman Grubbe said. "That's why we give to local charities. It's the right thing to do. We feel we have a responsibility to help those in need. It's an honor for us to have the ability to help so many people."
