Our Promise Campaign Chairs

Our Promise California State Employees Giving at Work is honored to host dynamic chairs from different state agencies during the campaign that runs annually October-December. State agencies – along with other departments – work to ensure that every state employee is given the opportunity to donate to philanthropic organizations throughout the state. During the campaign, employees can give to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization having as low as $5 per pay cycle deducted from their wages.

The Man Behind Our Promise

Intent on honoring the man who began Our Promise (formerly California State Employees Charitable Campaign or CSEECC), we wandered the halls of the California State Archives in search of the ghost of Our Promise past. With hope and determination, and a little dusting off of the old record books, of course, we were able to re-discover the man who started it all. A man with a long history of charity and community action and involvement. A man by the name of Augustus F. Hawkins.
