Nonprofit Outreach Program


Nonprofit Outreach Program

The Our Promise Nonprofit Outreach Program is a great way to connect state employees with the nonprofit agencies who benefit from their generous contributions. This campaign year nonprofit outreach opportunities will be held in person or through a virtual platform.

The Our Promise Nonprofit Outreach Program organizes two types of events:

  • Speaking Engagements—Trained nonprofit speakers can join your meeting in person, virtually or provide a previously recorded video to share their nonprofit agency’s experiences, programs and results directly with employees.
  • Nonprofit Fairs—Multiple nonprofits can join your event in person, virtually or provide a previously recorded video so employees can learn about multiple nonprofits and programs at once. Nonprofit fairs are not recommended for all work environments. Please work with your Our Promise liaison to determine if a fair is right for you before submitting a request.

August is the month of hot summer nights and gearing up to go back to school, which makes it an ideal time to focus on health issues like immunizations.

Learn about observances in August and California nonprofit organizations that support causes related to them. State workers have an opportunity to celebrate and support causes by making a monthly payroll donation through Our Promise.

July is the month of summer fun — camping, enjoying picnics, and fireworks. Did you know it’s also when we celebrate the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act? It’s also a time to learn about issues that are often overlooked but affect many Californians — minority mental health and sarcoma cancers.
