What is the Indiana State Employees’ Community Campaign (SECC)?
The SECC is the annual charity campaign administered by the State of Indiana employees. The SECC allows state employees and guests to contribute to any charity with a 501 (c)(3) ruling through either a one-time contribution or the convenience of payroll deductions.
Over the past 40 years, state employees and other participants have contributed $34 million to charities of their choice. Last year, more than 6,200 people contributed to 1,600 charities through the SECC and raised more than $1,545,000.
Wait, for every dollar donated, it is going to be doubled?
