State Employee Charitable Campaign up for Sunset Review – Hearing Wednesday, September 5th
In 1993, the state legislature created the State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) to provide a new benefit for state workers. The ability to make tax-deductible contributions to a wide range of charities through their paychecks has giving state employees an easy way to donate to charities of their choice and raised more than $9 million for charities in 2011.
If your charity is a participant or you are a state employee who donates through this system, a coalition of individuals and charitable organizations are working to find a small number of articulate supporters of SECC to speak at a hearing on Wednesday Sept. 5 at the State Capitol or submit comments to the Commission by September 10th.
