The chance to participate came with the most recent paycheck, which included a letter, pledge form and campaign brochure. Using the pledge form, employees can make a one-time donation or an ongoing contribution as small as $2 per month.
When making a pledge, designate a recipient from the campaign brochure (all of which have been screened by the State Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board), specify any non-profit, or leave that section blank and the money will go into the United Way of the Bay Area's local fund.
