The State Employee Charitable Campaign provides State of Michigan employees with the most efficient and consistent pathway possible for charitable giving, payroll deduction. The SECC was created to combine all charitable appeals and giving drives into one annual event during a five week period, typically in the fall. Employees can contribute to over 1200 charities which support the communities in which they live, work, volunteer and raise their families.
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the only authorized solicitation of Federal employees in their workplaces on behalf of approved charitable organizations. The CFC began in the early 1960’s to coordinate the fundraising efforts of various charitable organizations so that the Federal donor would only be solicited once in the workplace and have the opportunity to make charitable contributions through payroll deduction. Federal employees continue to make the CFC the largest and most successful workplace philanthropic fundraiser in the world. Continuing a long-standing tradition of selfless giving, in 2006, Federal employees raised over $271 million dollars for charitable causes around the world.
