UNCG awarded for SECC per-capita giving

UNCG received the Gold Chairman’s Award from the SECC for the highest per capita donation for a UNC school of our size in 2012. UNCG was recognized in the “1,500 – 4,999 Employees” category.

UNCG employees contributed $240,696 to the State Employees Combined Campaign, which helps support more than 1,000 charitable organizations throughout the region and state. It surpassed its 2012 goal of $235,000.

In the same category, NC A&T was awarded Silver.

The 2012 statewide campaign raised $4.4 million, for a more than 5.5 percent increase, reversing a downward trend. The last increase in the campaign had been in 2007.

The SECC site shows that UNCG had 46 percent participation. Only Elizabeth City State, with 53 percent, had a higher percentage in our system. The third highest was N.C. State, with 41 percent participation.
