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.
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 Loaned Executive, Key Connector, Department Campaign Chair or a 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 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. For the past two years, Department of Transportation has been the leader.
Are you planning on retiring soon? Did you know that you still can contribute to your favorite nonprofits via payroll deduction through your CalPERS retiree check?
It’s a great way to keep giving back to your community, and so easy to do. Please fill out the pledge form and complete Option 3. Then fill out section 8 on the pledge form to designate your gift to the nonprofits of your choice.
