(Sept. 26, 2013) -- UTSA President Ricardo Romo invites UTSA faculty and staff to celebrate the kickoff of the university's 2013 State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC). Learn about the agencies that benefit from SECC donations at three events around the UTSA campuses.
The kickoff events are:
Last year, UTSA employees donated $229,774 through SECC to support their favorite Texas charities. UTSA was ranked second in donations among all state agencies and institutions of higher education in SECC District 41, which includes San Antonio and surrounding counties. This year, UTSA's goal is $245,000.
>> As a reminder, the 2013 UTSA SECC Annual Fundraising Online Auction opened Sept. 16 and runs through Oct. 11. To view the great items in this year's auction, visit the UTSA SECC website, follow the link to the Online Silent Auction, check back daily and bid, bid, bid!
And, mark your calendar for UTSA SECC Book Sale, which will be 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Oct. 23-24 at Sombrilla Plaza on the Main Campus. Stop by for great deals on great books. If you have books you have read that are sitting on the shelf, consider donating them to the SECC Book Sale to help raise money for those in need.
This year's giving campaign runs Oct. 1-31. Online donations are encouraged but not required, and employees who make donations will be entered into special prize drawings scheduled throughout the month.
Last year, Texas state employees raised $957,501 for charities.
