How we help:

“I love hearing about all the great things the nonprofits that I donate to are doing. I feel as if they are ‘my nonprofits’ because I support them.”

Aileen Hildalgo | Department of Motor Vehicles

Giving to nonprofit agencies through Our Promise and United Way makes me feel good – like I’m a small part of the solution.

Tom Burns | Retired State Employee

“When you have the chance to be apart of something so positive, and surrounded by like-minded people, you have to grab that opportunity and experience everything that comes with it! I love being part of the Our Promise campaign.”
