Thanks to the generosity of California state employees over the last 60 years, the Our Promise initiative has shown our commitment and dedication to communities; its impact is truly historic, and has been the single largest effort among almost 300,000 state employees to support charitable programs. This is our promise to California. Every day. All year.
Lawfully established in 1957, CA Govt Code §14659, Our Promise gives State employees the right to donate to their chosen nonprofits directly through payroll deduction.
Annually, the Our Promise campaign commences on September 1 and concludes on October 31, and during these two months agencies and departments run their campaign efforts to ensure that each state employee be given an informed and educated opportunity to donate.
Outside of this two month campaign window, state employees are able to contact the Donor Hotline at (888) 863-6466 to receive assistance and make any changes to their current deduction, or begin a new deduction.
