Retiree Giving

For more than two decades, state employees have generously supported the SECC throughout their careers and many want to continue their public service of charitable giving once retired. The SECC has a simple retiree giving program that allows employees to continue their philanthropic commitment to their communities, state, and the world.

By clicking here for the Retiree Giving Pledge Form, you can see how easy it is to continue you annual gift to the SECC once you retire. It is as simple as filling out the pledge form and mailing it to SECC, 875 Walnut Street Suite 150-A, Cary, NC 27511.  Search for eligible charities by keyword, geographic region, or field of service on the SECC home page. If you choose to designate your gift to a specific charity, the Giving Guide is a great source to find comprehensive information on all of the independent charities and federations participating in the SECC campaign. If you have any questions about continuing you commitment to the SECC as a retiree please speak with any of the SECC staff at (919)821-2886. 

Retiree Volunteers

The North Carolina State Employees Combined Campaign is seeking retirees of state government to assist in several areas of the campaign. Individuals who have served as SECC or nonprofit volunteers in leadership roles in the past are strongly encouraged to consider volunteering. If you are interested in registering for volunteer opportunities with the SECC, contact the SECC office at or 919-821-2886.

Examples of volunteer opportunities with the SECC are:

working as a support volunteer for the Department/Division from which you retired – helping them to plan and run their campaign

  • enlisting sponsorships or donated items from area businesses
  • helping with campaign events such as nonprofit agency fairs providing administrative duties at the SECC office in Cary (near Cary Town Centre) such as data entry, counting/sorting/packing-up campaign supplies (pledge forms, brochures, posters), and calling SECC volunteers for updates

promoting the SECC to retirees at regional meetings during the campaign providing input on marketing initiatives: the campaign video, website content, overall message strategy

Your service as a volunteer with the SECC will help to promote philanthropy and community service while also providing state employees and retirees a convenient way to contribute to nonprofits and causes they care about.  Approximately 1,000 nonprofits serving North Carolinians were eligible for donations last year.
