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.

Please fill out the pledge form and complete Option 3. Then fill out section 8 on the pledge form to designate your gift to the nonprofits of your choice. 

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. Its very important to fill out Option 3 on the pledge form so you can continue to give back after retirement.

Completed pledge forms can be mailed or emailed in for processing:

Our Promise
Attn: Donor Services
10389 Old Placerville Road
Sacramento, CA 95827

Or email signed pledge form to us here:

Questions? You can reach our Donor Hotline at 888-863-6466 or via email at
