The State Employees Charitable Campaign provides State of Texas employees with the most efficient and consistent pathway possible for charitable giving, payroll deduction. Employees can contribute to nearly 1,000 charities which support the communities in which they live, work, volunteer and raise their families.

Thanks to the generosity of state employees, the 2016 Capital Area campaign raised $1.97 Million!

At some point in life, we could all use a little help. That opportunity couldn’t be more important today. Giving binds us together with our greater community and joins us in the shared mission of public service. I encourage you to consider growing your agencies’ SECC campaign.  Because payroll deductions let you spread your contributions across the entire year, vetted charities are rewarded with a steady source of revenue. The campaign is convenient, safe and rewarding for staff, and will allow your agency to show all Texans that state employees care about our community. I look forward to the 2017 campaign and working closely with the Local Employee Committee to best serve all state employees in our mutual charitable goals!
