UNCG gets SECC Gold Chairman’s Award for 2013

Photo of College Avenue UNCG employees donated $198,096 to the 2013 SECC.

That generosity has received notice by the State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC).

UNCG won the Gold Chairman’s Award in the category of per capita giving in UNC schools of our size (1,500 – 4,999 employees).

UNCG and NC State shared the top spot in the UNC system for participation percentage among their employees – 36 percent.

Every system campus had a smaller donation total than the year before.

UNCG placed in the top six in dollars given – that’s among all state agencies and universities, regardless of size.

The largest campaigns were:

  1. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  2. North Carolina State University
  3. Department of Public Safety
  4. Department of Health & Human Services
  5. UNC Health Care
  6. UNCG
  7. East Carolina University
  8. Department of Transportation
  9. State Employees Credit Union
  10. Appalachian State University

To give that some context, ECU in the seventh spot has 5,434 employees and had 17 percent participation, according to the SECC, for a total of $178,672. UNCG has less than half that number of employees – 2,603 – and had 36 percent participation to raise $198,096.
