State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC)

In addition to our own annual charitable campaign, we facilitate the Texas State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) across Cooke, Denton, Fannin, Grayson and Montague counties, the only authorized workplace campaign for over 8,000 state and higher education employees since 1993.

Every year from September 1st to October 31st, with the management and oversight of a Local Employee Committee, our United Way of Denton County staff help state employees donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to charities both local and statewide.

For more information, contact or visit SECC Texas.

The 2022 application deadline for a local charitable organizations or federations in the North Texas Area 29 SECC region is: Friday, March  25th.

All application documentation must be received by 11:59PM CST on this date.

The state has launched an online application form for all local charities! They have combined the application form and instructions into one online form. We hope that this new form makes the SECC application process more effective, affordable, and quicker for everyone! This is the ONLY way to submit your application for participation in the SECC.

Please carefully review the application information below. United of Denton County is your primary point of contact during this application process, so feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

All applicants are required to create an account to complete and submit their application. Keep your username and password handy, so that if needed, you can save a draft and return to complete your submission. Also, this username and password will continue to be used for future applications. We advise that you use an easy to remember username like first initial and last name (ex: jdoe).
