Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work
The VCGCB assists with the administration of the Our Promise Campaign (formerly CSECC). This campaign provides a single, coordinated fund-raising drive that allows state employees to direct regular contributions from their paychecks to any of the hundreds of participating charitable organizations. State employees annually donate millions of dollars to various charitable organizations.
Each year, the VCGCB certifies the eligibility of charities and selects organizations to manage the campaign in various regions throughout the state. All applicants must certify their exempt status under California Revenue and Taxation Code section 23701(d) and United States Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). Furthermore, they must also certify compliance with the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, Part 2.8 (commencing with Section 12900).
State of California Employees: Please note the "Organization Code Number" required on the Our Promise Pledge Form can be found in the Donor Resource Guide, published annually by the United Way.
