The Big GiveCity of Sacramento employees give over $150,000 annually to the charities which participate in the citywide charitable contributions campaign. Many employees give very small amounts, from as little as $1 each payday, which proves that just a small donation from many employees can have a great impact on our local, national and global community!

The Big Give Campaign consists of many nonprofit organizations that have local, national and global outreach. Please view the Big Give Campaign Directory for a complete list of charities.

Setup your voluntary deduction for charitable giving in eCaps self-service to select a local charity from the available list. Click on the Payroll tile in your eCaps home screen and then click Voluntary Deductions on the left side menu. You can then view, add, or update your deductions.
