State Employee Charitable Campaign 2020 (and take a look at the chance for some cool "early bird" prizes)

Dear faculty and staff,

One of the many ways we at Texas A&M Health can improve our communities is through the State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC). As you may or may not know, Now More Than Ever, the campaign gives every state employee the chance to donate to different nonprofit organizations across the state.

You can have confidence that every group and charity that participates in this campaign is required to meet strict eligibility standards that are established by state law. These standards assure that your gift will be used wisely toward the specific organizations you pick.

Giving has never been easier. You are able to make your donation in three convenient ways:

  1. Payroll Deduction: Go to SSO and select the SECC Enrollment link. Here you will be able to give through a one-time payroll deduction or recurring deduction based on your pay schedule.
  2. Paper Pledge Form: Go to SSO, print out a paper pledge form and make a one-time gift by cash or check.
  3. Campus / Remote Events: Participate in unit fundraisers.

Our world has changed, and our fundraising will have to change as well. Early bird drawings will be available for anyone who donates $100 or more by Tuesday, September 15. You will be entered for a chance to win two tickets to the President’s suite for the September 26 home football game against Vanderbilt including a two-night stay at the Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center, or a $500 gift card.

Sloane Williams, assistant vice president of marketing and communications, will serve as the Texas A&M Health campaign chair working closely with each of your unit coordinators to make this a successful campaign for everyone involved.

The campaign runs from September 1 to October 31. It is voluntary and completely tax-deductible.

With everything our communities have endured this year, it is especially important that we give back in service to the people of our state. Please join me in participating in this year’s SECC by giving what you can. Together we can make a difference. For details on how to contribute and to identify your unit coordinator for questions, visit the Texas A&M Health SECC page.

Thanks for all you do, and let’s make this the best Charitable Campaign ever!
