Dear Golden State Employees: 

For more than 60 years, you and your fellow employees have been giving back to those in need through Our Promise. In that time, you have raised hundreds of millions of dollars for organizations doing exemplary work to make California the best place to live, work and play.
I’m calling on you – my fellow state employees – to join together to help fulfill our important promise: We will care for California. Every Day. All Year. 

From health and animal welfare organizations to human services and environmental groups, and partners that support our state’s children and schools through education, everyone can find a cause they are passionate about supporting. Your donation means nonprofits are making a greater impact in your neighborhood and in our communities, which means healthier, happier homes and residents all across the state.

I am personally grateful for your work on behalf of our state and for your continued support of the Our Promise Campaign. It is with great honor that I get to represent such a wonderful group of committed California state employees as the 2018 Our Promise Chair.
I challenge you all to make a pledge to one or more of the 2,300 nonprofits. Remember, you have the power to make our communities statewide a better place to live, work and play.

Let’s get started!

Marcie Frost
CEO, CalPERS
2018 Chair
