The annual State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) runs from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31. During the SECC, state employees may elect to have contributions to participating charities deducted from their paychecks and sent to the statewide federations or local campaign areas participating in the campaign. Each year, changes may be made to the participating groups, and the mailing addresses and managers for continuing groups. The payee codes and Texas Identification Numbers (TINS) used to process payments may also change.
2022 SECC Changes
Some of the campaign managers, telephone numbers and addresses of Local Campaign Areas and Statewide Federations have changed. For the revised listings, see 2022 Local Campaign Areas, Managers, Telephone and Texas Identification Numbers (login required) and 2022 Statewide Federations or Funds – Texas Identification Numbers (login required). The USPS and CAPPS Central payroll tables will reflect these changes for the Dec. 2022 payrolls.
The contact names and addresses listed in 2022 State Employee Charitable Campaign Federations, Managers and Local Campaign Areas (login required) are for pledge information only. Please use the address in the Texas Identification Number System (TINS) for payment remittance.
Online Giving Option for Certain State Agencies
As with the 2018 SECC, certain agency employees can enroll in the 2022 campaign and make their charity elections online. Those elections will be provided to CAPPS Central and CAPPS Hub agencies for import into the payroll system. Agencies that choose to use this option must inform their employees the online system is available.
For the 2022 campaign, the online option will not be available to agencies using USPS.
Direct Deposit Payments
Charities may change their direct deposit account numbers at the beginning of the campaign year. If the change is not made before payroll processing deadlines, a warrant is issued instead of a direct deposit transaction for the pay period.
Changes to Payroll/Personnel Systems
The Uniform Statewide Payroll/Personnel System (USPS), the Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS) Central and TINS will be updated to reflect any changes as of the December payroll. Agencies and institutions of higher education not using USPS or CAPPS Central must update their payroll/personnel systems accordingly.
Note: An employee who chooses to contribute to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum has the option of either making a monthly donation or becoming a member of the museum. Those who choose to become members should follow the membership instructions on the museum’s website. They must send a copy of the SECC pledge form as well as a museum membership application directly to the museum.
