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 2022 Capital Area campaign raised $1.03 million.


Welcome 2023 Capital Area SECC Ambassadors!

We look forward to working with you in the 2023 State Employee Charitable Campaign.
