UNCG encourages all employees to participate in the SECC in one of two ways: support a charity or officially opt out via the online ePledge system. Individuals who wish to opt out can follow the link in the SECC emails they receive each week. Employees will continue to receive email reminders until they participate. UNCG hopes to raise more than $200,000 for charities across the Triad and the state through this year’s campaign.
UNCG launched the 2015 SECC last week with a kickoff meeting that included powerful words from Chancellor Franklin Gilliam Jr.
“It’s these tough economic times that make your contribution more important than ever,” Gilliam said.
“Every donation matters. No matter how large, no matter how small.”
During the training session, SECC Committee Chair Ray Carney praised the solicitors for their work last year.
“You guys are the ones in the trenches. You should be proud.”
Carney emphasized the importance of making this campaign a positive experience for all UNCG employees, and encouraged individuals to personalize the campaign and use SECC as a way to tell their story.
While paper pledge forms are still available for employees, the ePledge system is the easiest way to participate. For more information about the campaign, visit secc.uncg.edu. To donate via ePledge, visit www.ncsecc.org/donate.
