Yesterday we joined several other local charities on the West Steps of the State Capitol for an event to kick off the State’s Our Promise campaign.
Our Promise offers California State employees the opportunity to utilize payroll deduction to give to organizations they are passionate about.

Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work encompasses 29 regional campaigns throughout the state. In previous years campaigns like this one have solicited more than 297,000 California State employees through Our Promise.
“Our Promise is important for the Rangeland Trust because it provides a vehicle for all of the 297,000 State of California employees to donate to our organization in a very simple payroll deduction process,” said Randy Gustavus, Rangeland Trust Director of Development. “All of the charities in the campaign must meet a very stringent approval process and are vetted to insure employees that their money is being accepted and utilized to advance issues like land conservation in California.”
At the event we networked with hundreds of people and gave away every piece of literature, sticker, button, notepad and ink pen we had on hand.
It was a great event!
