SECC surpasses goal with more than $203,000 raised

120716feature_seccThe UNCG State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC) has surpassed its goal of $199,999, with more than $203,000 and counting raised for charities across the state, country and world.

Nearly 1,000 faculty and staff members have participated in the campaign, which has surpassed last year’s effort by more than $10,000.

“The UNCG community has once again demonstrated its deep commitment to those in need. Those needs were so visible this fall, from the flooding in the east to the drought and fires in the west, in addition to challenges closer to home in Greensboro,” said campaign chair Dr. DiAnne Borders. “The generosity of so many staff and faculty members will mean so much to so many great causes – and will clearly demonstrate ‘The Power of UNCG Giving.’”

Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. said, “I want to congratulate and honor the hundreds of Spartan employees who contributed. Through their gifts, they are making a tremendous impact in our community and well beyond, exemplifying our university’s motto of service. At this time of year, it is especially important to consider how many lives the people of our university touch through what we do and what we give. I also want to recognize the volunteers – including this year’s campaign chair, DiAnne Borders – who do a tremendous job each year.”

Employees can continue to make pledges through the end of December. Pledges can be made online using ePledge or via the paper pledge form. The ePledge site can be accessed at ncsecc.org.
