The State Employee Charitable Campaign was created by legislation in 1993 and allows employees of State agencies, junior and community colleges, and universities throughout Texas the benefit of making charitable gifts through an annual workplace campaign. The SECC is the only statutorily authorized workplace campaign for State agency and higher education employees. In 2015, over $8 million was pledged to SECC charities statewide.
