We Make a Difference
The 2021 Indiana State Employees’ Community Campaign (SECC), Indiana’s workplace giving program offering State employees the opportunity to contribute to causes they care about, is officially underway and runs through November 5.
This year, our goal is to raise $1.5 million for the 1,500+ charities participating in the SECC. The need has never been greater. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, charities are struggling to fulfill ever-increasing demand with ever-dwindling resources. Our friends and neighbors – the people and communities depending on their services – need our help more than ever. Your donation of any amount is a huge help to these causes and the most vulnerable among us.
To make charitable giving easier than ever, we are excited to unveil the SECC’s new, secure, state-of-the-art website and giving portal, designed with you in mind. If you’re reading this, you’ve already found it! Thank you for taking the first step. You’re just a few clicks away from making a big difference.
When you’re ready to give, just click the “Donate Now” button. You will be taken to the “Log On” page where you can enter in your credentials. On that page, you’ll find instructions for setting your username and password. Then, just follow the prompts to find your favorite causes and give by payroll deduction, debit/credit card, or electronic check.
Those that participated in the 2020 SECC last year and have current have payroll deductions, your pledge is automatically rolled over for the 2021 SECC. If you are happy with your current level of giving and recipient organization, no action on your part is required. However, if you want to check on or modify your pledge, you may do so on this giving portal.
If at any time you are unsure what to do, please find step-by-step giving instructions in PDF format here and an illustrated slideshow here. Whether you’re making a new contribution or modifying an existing pledge, be sure to click “Finish” at the end of the giving process. You may also find answers to your most frequently asked questions (FAQs) here.
Once you’ve made a pledge, please spread the word! We encourage you to share a few words about why you gave or the charity close to your heart on social media, as they will inspire others to get involved. To get you started, we’ve created a social media tool kit with messages you are welcome to copy and paste into your favorite social media channels. Please click here to download the tool kit as a Word document to your computer.
