Giving to charities has never been so easy!

The State Employee Charitable Campaign is the only statutorily authorized workplace campaign for state agency and higher education employees throughout Texas. Thanks to legislation that created the State Employee Charitable Campaign 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 through an annual workplace giving campaign which features the convenience of payroll deduction.

  • SECC is an easy, effective and cost-efficient way to give to charities.

  • Contributions help improve the quality of life.

  • The campaign supports a wide variety of vital health and human services. 

  • All charities in the campaign must meet strict eligibility criteria.

  • The campaign is for state employees and is governed by state employees.

The 2017 SECC is now closed.  Thanks to all who were able to make a contribution and thank you to everyone for your consideration! Pledge totals are being tabulated, so stay tuned for the final results.

With the 24th annual campaign underway, your support is needed now more than ever.  As you consider making a voluntary contribution, reach out to co-workers and ask them to join you.
Our 2017 SECC statewide goal is $8,461,000.  Did you know? If half of the 267,000+ state employees each gave $65, we can meet this goal.  It takes everyone working together to support our state.  Thank you for your consideration!

Retired Employee Giving

For more than two decades, state employees have generously supported the SECC throughout their careers and many want to continue their public service of charitable giving once retired.

Making a difference in someone’s life is as easy as selecting from hundreds of vetted charities, filling out an SECC pledge form, and mailing or dropping your contribution off to the Capital Area SECC office c/o United Way for Greater Austin, 2000 E. MLK JR Blvd, Austin, TX 78702.  If you are outside of Austin area (Capital Area), you can send your contribution to your local SECC campaign manager.

If every retiree in Central Texas contributed $50 to a charitable mission close to their heart, our community would gain $5 Million a year to support community resources and human services!

Thank you to all of the retired employees who have contributed to the SECC over many years!
