Leadership Giving

The Texas Legislature established the SECC in 1993. It is the only charitable organization authorized to solicit donations in state workplaces. The SECC allows employees of state agencies, universities and community colleges to support their favorite charities through an annual campaign featuring convenient payroll deduction.

Leadership gifts are gifts of $1,000 or more. Leadership giving is a way to maximize the impact of your philanthropy through the SECC. With hundreds of charities listed in the directory, you have the ability to support your favorite charities and causes through one simple campaign. If you choose to give a leadership gift and agree to be acknowledged, your name will be provided to the recipient charities and listed in next year's SECC directory.

If your resources allow, please consider making a leadership gift of $1,000 ($83.34 per month) or more. For many, writing a one-time check for $1,000 or more could affect their monthly household budget. There are many benefits to payroll deduction. It allows you to manage your monthly cash flow while maximizing your support of a favorite charity (ties).
