SECC Tops Goal, Hits $241,605

120110NewsAndNotes_PeaceThe SECC goal was $235,000. In the final days of the campaign, the goal was exceeded.

At a campaign finale meeting Nov. 17, campaign chair Benita Peace announced the total: $241,605.

The official workplace giving campaign for employees throughout state government and the university system, the SECC assists more than 900 agencies and groups.

More than 100 volunteer solicitors had worked thoughout campus to receive the donations.

Peace presented a PowerPoint at the solicitors’ final meeting, recounting the campaign and the effort to reach the goal in these tough times, with economic uncertainty and so much need in our community.

The final slide said it all:

“Thanks to all for:

  • Your hard work
  • Not giving up
  • All those who gave
  • All those who wanted to give but couldn’t
  • For your participation
  • For supporting UNCG.”

Peace later reflected on the faculty and staff volunteers’ hard work – and the positive result.

“During the campaign I knew the major resource to achieving the $235,00 goal was the more than 100 volunteer solicitors on campus. Their work was outstanding. It’s not easy, especially during these economic times, to continually remind employees of participation and donations needed to meet the dollar amount recommended. All the solicitors kept this going, right up until the last day.”
