Our Promise is here


Caring for California. What does this mean to you? What do you want to see in your community?

We all have a vision for our neighborhoods, our city and our state. Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work is your opportunity to support causes and nonprofits that will help your vision become a reality.

Whether your department has already kicked off their giving period, or yours is around the corner, participating in Our Promise is your chance to give back through payroll deduction.

For more than 60 years, California state employees like you, have chosen to support the campaign and impact the lives of thousands in our state. Whether it’s to an organization providing services to seniors, reading tutors for schools, or a safe place for abandoned pets, Our Promise allows you to make a difference that matters.

Today, and over the next few weeks, we ask you to become part of the solution by giving to a cause or issue you feel most passionate about. By filling out your pledge form, you can get started on fulfilling Our Promise. You can search for nonprofits here.

“I’m thankful for all who give through Our Promise. Your donations truly benefit many families in need like mine,” says Kevin Alexander, Lieutenant with the California Highway Patrol. Kevin’s daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was just 12 years old, but is leading a normal life of independence through the support of several nonprofits that receive donations through Our Promise.

We look forward to sharing Kevin’s story during the campaign, as well as other stories of how Our Promise has made a difference and shown the commitment and dedication of state employees on behalf of their communities.
