TWU kicks-off State Employee Charitable Campaign
Texas Woman’s University is kicking off its annual State
Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) during the month of October.
TWU’s goal is to raise $56,000 and to have 85 percent
faculty and staff participation from its Denton, Dallas and
TWU was recognized
by the state for having the highest participation —
72 percent — and the highest per capita gift —
$57.61 — for higher education employees in 2005, when
the university raised $65,629 for the campaign.
SECC campaign is chaired by Dr. Sheri Dragoo, associate professor
of fashion and textiles, and Michelle Williams-Laing, director
of the Professional Development Center in the College of Professional
Education. For more information on the campaign visit www.twu.edu/secc.
The Texas Legislature
created the SECC in 1993 for employees of state agencies,
junior and community colleges and universities throughout
Texas to give to their favorite charities through an annual
workplace giving campaign that features the convenience of
payroll deduction. SECC is the only statutorily authorized
workplace campaign for state agency and higher education employees
throughout Texas. Beneficiaries include local United Way agencies
and other charities that the employee donor can choose to
direct their donated funds.
