All the information you need about donating, volunteering, managing an existing donation, finding a charity to support and other programs that Our Promise offers like leadership and retiree giving.
Are you a CURRENT Our Promise campaign donor and want to track your charitable gift to your designated nonprofit(s)? You can access the ePledge Portal through your Cal Employee Connect(CEC) profile. Simply access your profile, click the ‘User Profile’ button, then click the ePledge site button. We’ve made it easy for you to login into our BRAND NEW donor tracker to access information about your current designations. Make changes or new one-time donations at any time.
Volunteering is a great way to give back some of your time. There are several opportunities to volunteer within the Our Promise campaign – you can be a Leader United, Key Connector, Department Campaign Chair or Leadership Team Member. We also 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 California community.
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. We honor our gracious Leadership Givers every year by recognizing them with a certificate and gift that are delivered to each recipient usually in January. We also recognize the Department or Agency with the most Leadership Givers at our annual Thank You breakfast held in March.
Are you planning on retiring soon? Did you know that you still can contribute to your favorite nonprofits via payroll deduction through your retirement check?
As a retiree, you can continue donating to nonprofits through Our Promise! It’s an easy way to continue your monthly donations to nonprofits that rely on your support.
If you are currently enrolled in Our Promise and already have a deduction taken out, this will NOT roll over once you have retired since you are no longer receiving a pay warrant from the State Controller’s Office.
