I am proud of the commitment made by California State Employees to build stronger communities not only through your work at the state, but also by your charitable contributions to the Our Promise initiative.
Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work (formerly CSECC) was established in 1957 to provide a single charitable fund-raising drive in the State community. Our Promise offers California State employees the opportunity to utilize payroll deduction to support charitable organizations they feel passionate about. The California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board provides oversight of this campaign and the enabling regulations are found in the California Administrative Code.
Although Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work is commonly referred to as if it were a single entity, it actually encompasses 29 regional campaigns throughout the state. In previous years these campaigns have solicited more than 297,000 California State employees through Our Promise (formerly CSECC).
The California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board (VCGCB) selects the organization best qualified to manage Our Promise in a designated geographical area. These organizations are known as Principal Combined Fund Drive (PCFD) Agencies and are traditionally local United Ways. There are 29 PCFD Agencies included in the 2014 campaign.
Some of the ways in which the local PCFD facilitates the campaign:
Delivering of pledge forms to local offices for each department
Serving as a liaison between the PCFD and the state department and their employees in that region
Assisting volunteers with all Our Promise materials
Coordinating volunteers and speakers for meetings
Providing volunteer training
