Donor Resources


Manage Your Donation

If you have a current donation through Our Promise, we can help you modify your donation, answer questions about gift acknowledgement and provide you with more information about giving options.



Volunteering is a great way to give back some of your time. We encourage people to volunteer with a local nonprofit that they feel passionately about. California Volunteers is a great way to get connected with volunteer opportunities in your local community.


Leadership Giving

An annual gift of $1,000 or more qualifies you to be a Leadership Giver. Through the convenience of payroll deduction, this can be achieved for a minimum monthly deduction of $83.34 – only $2.74 per day.


Retiree Giving

Regardless of the status of your employment, you can continue giving back to your community through Our Promise.

Both current and retired California State employees can enjoy the convenience of giving through payroll deduction by completing and submitting the  Our Promise Pledge Form.


What Your Donation Buys

Your donations can make a big difference for local nonprofits. Several nonprofits that participate in Our Promise offer great information about the difference donations can make. A gift of $10 per month could feed a family of 4, or a gift of $20 a month could help one family work towards financial stability via job skills training, childcare and healthcare.
