If you prefer donating online, you may do that.

It’s called ePledge.

If you prefer to donate via the traditional methods, such as check or payroll deduction, those options are available as well. Just see the form in your SECC envelope.

The State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC) is the official, annual giving campaign for state employees. It supports more than 1,000 charitable organizations in our community and state.

Last Wednesday, UNCG’s volunteer departmental solicitors gathered for their kickoff meeting and to learn more about ePledge. For many volunteers, it’s their first year in the role. A handful have done it for 15 years or more.

“I want to thank all of you for your willingness to serve,” Chancellor Linda P. Brady told the volunteer solicitors from across campus.

Lots of UNCG employees give to the campaign. UNCG historically has the highest or one of the highest per capita percentages of giving in the UNC System. Last year, 46 percent gave, a percentage second only to Elizabeth City State.

That rate of participation helps many in need.

Full information is at the new UNCG SECC web site, secc.uncg.edu – including details about ePledge. Questions? Email secc@uncg.edu or just ask your department SECC volunteer.
