SECC 2016

Ready to Help!  

That’s what Business Affairs does!  We help our campus community in many ways…every person, every day, every job.  
Now it’s time to reach beyond and lend a hand to those in our county, state, country, and world who need a leg up.  
The State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) is the workplace giving campaign for State of Texas employees, including state universities and colleges. The University of Texas at San Antonio participates in the SECC with the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County.
You can give to many of your favorite charities through an annual workplace giving campaign that features the convenient option of payroll deduction. In the past two decades, state employees donated more than $90 million to help charitable organizations.

Why give through SECC?

  • It’s an easy, effective and cost-efficient way to give to charities and help those in need.
  • Our contributions help improve the quality of life for people (and animals) in communities locally, across the country and around the world.
  • The campaign supports a wide variety of vital health and human services.
  • All charities in the campaign must meet strict eligibility criteria.

With a low overhead of less than 10% statewide, more of your contribution gets to the charities you select than in almost any similar fund-raising activity.

Let’s Give!  It’s easy! 

Visit the UTSA SECC website between October 3 until November 4 and click on the “Donate Now” button. Key in your ABC123 and passphrase, then follow the directions for how you want to donate. Choose your charities and the percentage for each charity. You can make either a one-time gift by cash or check or arrange to have your gift deducted from each paycheck starting in January 2017. After you submit your donation, you’ll see a Thank You page and receive a confirmation email. You may want to save that for your tax records.

Your gifts, large and small, are welcome:

  • Donate gently used women’s and children’s clothing, hygiene products, diapers, and toys for the Battered Women’s and Children’s Center
  • Donate books for the book sale. If your office doesn’t have a book or clothing collection box, set one up.
  • Create a gift basket or donate an item for the silent auction between now and Oct 3. Call Elizabeth Ortiz, x6221, to include it in the auction.
  • Bid on your favorite auction items on the SECC website, starting Oct 10. (Remember the holidays are around the corner.)
  • Drop your spare change in the department piggy bank.
  • Create your own fundraising event.
