24th Annual Texas State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC)

Thank you for giving through the 24th Annual Texas State Employee Charitable Campaign. Together, we raised nearly $70,000 for America’s Charities and our participating nonprofit members!

The SECC is the only authorized workplace campaign for state agency and higher education employees throughout Texas. Thanks to legislation that created the SECC in 1993, employees of state agencies, junior and community colleges, and universities throughout Texas enjoy the benefit of giving to many of their favorite charities.

In 2016, State of Texas employees demonstrated their generosity by raising $8,155,336.71 during the SECC, bringing the total amount given to more than $168 million since 1994!

The 2017 SECC statewide goal was $8,461,000.
