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.
We have provided the tools and resources that our campaign volunteers need to conduct a successful campaign, from a donor pledge form to sample letters and templates such as a business solicitation letter to help with your special event planning. These materials are easily able to be downloaded for your use.
We have heard your feedback! We designed our 2016-17 Donor Resource Guide (DRG) in effort to drastically decrease the amount of paper we use. This years DRG provides an insightful overview on how Our Promise works and ways to get involved (payroll deduction, volunteerism, retiree giving, etc.).
It’s easy to donate through Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work. Donors can simply download the pledge form and turn it in to a Key Connector or campaign contact at their department.
Outside of the main campaign time frame from September 1 – October 31 donors can turn in their pledge form to the Our Promise office listed below.
Donors can proudly display their support of the Our Promise campaign at their desk or in a designated area of their office. We invite you to utilize it as a promotional tool to publicize the Our Promise campaign and donor participation in the campaign.
Provided on this page are the standards and downloads for Our Promise logos, colors, and email signature blocks.
Think about working with your marketing department to incorporate these pieces in your campaign planning. Bringing branding and education to the forefront of your campaign this year to help share the message of how important it is to support nonprofits to your follow employees.

This agreement is used to ensure the proper handling of all Our Promise materials, especially sensitive material. Please have your Key Connectors and anyone else on your campaign team who will be handling the pledge forms, sign one of these and return it to your Department Campaign Chair for them to return to your local PCFD (United Way) managing your campaign.
