State Employee Charitable Campaign Begins October 1– Donate online through 10/31/2021

 

State Employee Charitable Campaign Begins October 1– Donate online through 10/31/2021

The State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) is celebrating its 27th year of supporting charities that provide services that make our state stronger. Since 1994, higher education, state and retired employees in Texas have contributed more than $182 million.

Through Oct. 31, employees can contribute to any of the more than 1,300 local and statewide charities working to ensure that all Texas neighborhoods and communities thrive. Through the SECC, donations by higher education and state employees have provided meals to hungry children, service dogs to veterans, support for cancer survivors and more.

Last year, contributions from 32,000 employees – averaging $219 per employee — amounted to $7.1 million dispersed to food banks, homeless or domestic violence shelters, job training programs for veterans and many other community programs. These charitable contributions translate directly to increased community services to help keep Texans healthy, safe and strong.

Your generous donation gives back to those in need during this challenging time. Please consider making a charitable contribution through the SECC and help improve people’s lives.
