Retiree Giving


Retiree Giving

Are you planning on retiring soon? Did you know that you still can contribute to your favorite nonprofits via payroll deduction through your retirement check?

It’s a great way to keep giving back to your community, and so easy to do.

As a retiree, you can continue donating to nonprofits through Our Promise! Please contact the Our Promise Team and they can set up your deduction through your CalPERS retirement check. It’s an easy way to continue your monthly donations to nonprofits that rely on your support. 

You can reach our Donor Hotline at 888-863-6466 or via email at for questions and to request a pledge form.


If you are currently enrolled in Our Promise and already have a deduction taken out, this will NOT roll over once you have retired since you are no longer receiving a pay warrant from the State Controller’s Office. It’s very important to fill out Option 3 on the pledge form so you can continue to give back after retirement.

We are excited to announce our partnership with Cal State Retirees! 

Each month you will see an Our Promise ad in their online and printed monthly publication. We want to ensure that ALL California State employees get the most out of retirement! Our Promise makes it easy to continue supporting your favorite charities through our partnership.
