Dear UNT faculty and staff,

Today is the first day of UNT's State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC), which is an opportunity for you to support local, state, national and international charities through a one-time donation via payroll deduction, cash or check. Nearly 400 eligible organizations participate in the state's annual campaign, which runs Oct. 1-31.

UNT has set two campaign goals this year. First, we want to ensure that all eligible employees are aware of the SECC and have an opportunity to give. Second, we would like to beat last year's total pledge amount of $139,163. The minimum donation is $2 and even the smallest contributions help.

Please consider financially supporting UNT's SECC campaign by making a one-time donation or by participating in campus wide fundraising events and giveaways this month. This is one way we can extend UNT's caring spirit beyond our campus and throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Imagine the local impact we can make.

Payroll deduction pledges can be easily completed through the SECC Texas Giving Portal. If you need help navigating the giving portal, watch this instructional video. If you wish to contribute through a cash or check donation, or need assistance completing a payroll deduction pledge, please contact your department coordinator for assistance.

SECC is a great way to help others while having fun and fellowship with our co-workers. Be sure to watch the SECC Twitter and Facebook pages this month to learn about events and opportunities to participate.

UNT Proud,
Neal Smatresk
