Nonprofit organizations need Our Promise

Each year, thousands of nonprofit organizations depend on the generous contributions from Our Promise campaign donors. Last year, state employees raised nearly six million dollars. 

From animal care to environmental issues, women and children in need to local arts – the funds raised directly impact every sector of the nonprofit landscape. 

This year is definitely unlike any other year. As all Californians re-examine how to navigate through the pandemic, our nonprofits need us now, more than ever! 

State employees’ donations through the Our Promise campaign will help ensure that the issues and causes we care so deeply about will remain funded during this unprecedented pandemic. 

Testimonies from a few non-profit organizations that have benefitted from Our Promise:

For the United Way California Capital Region, donations from the Our Promise campaign “is a gamechanger,” according to its CEO Stephanie Bray. “We wouldn’t have funding for programs that focus on ending poverty through strengthening schools and supporting families. 

“The Placer SPCA counts on Our Promise donations to support homeless and abandoned animals by providing veterinary care, reuniting pets and families, and so many more services that are critical during these unprecedented times,” said Leilani Freitas, Director of Development.

“Here in Sacramento county, the demand for food has more than doubled since the pandemic has started,” said Melanie Flood, Development Director at the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services. “We are feeding people for the first time who have never had to utilize a food program before.”

Our Promise not only helps WEAVE, Inc. support those who experience sexual assault, domestic violence, and sex trafficking but also helps survivors in more effective and efficient ways,” said Julie Bornhoeft, Chief Strategy & Sustainability Officer.
