At the core of every worthwhile endeavor are those whose caring and personal leadership establish a powerful example for others. Leadership giving provides such an opportunity for those wishing to maximize the impact of their charitable gift through the State Employee Charitable Campaign this year.

An SECC leadership gift will provide far-reaching opportunities for your favorite charitable organizations, enabling them to address a wider range of health and human service issues due to your increased generosity.

If you choose to give $1,000 or more, please indicate the appropriate giving level on your pledge form and complete the acknowledgement section; if you choose to be acknowledged, your name will be provided to the recipient charities and listed in next year’s directory. Acknowledged givers will also receive a token of appreciation for their gift.
