Florida State Employees Charitable Campaign
What is the Florida State Employees’ Charitable Campaign?
The Florida State Employees’ Charitable Campaign (FSECC) is the single authorized solicitation of state
employees to voluntarily benefit charities providing programs to meet human needs in our community, across
the nation and abroad.
Advantages of the Campaign
One campaign is less time consuming and less costly (more help for human needs). Payroll deduction is
authorized (take a full year to finance your gift with small payments).
Oversight for the FSEC Campaign is provided by a Steering Committee appointed by the Governor and
Cabinet and the Department of Management Services, comprised of nine state employees. All charities listed
have been screened by the Committee, which recommends admission to the Department of Management
How Is My Gift Distributed?
You have the choice of designating a specific charity (or charities) and/or umbrella groups to receive your gift.
Designations to charities that are members of America’s Charities, Community Health Charities of Florida,
EarthShare, Global Impact, Independent Charities of America dba America’s Best Charities, Neighbor to
Nation, Partners for a Better World, or the United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties, are provided to their
respective umbrella groups for distribution. Designated gifts to the independent unaffiliated agencies will be
transmitted directly. All contributions are subject to an administrative charge covering campaign and yearround
Undesignated contributions will be distributed proportionally to charities providing direct services in your local
area that receive designations from other state employees in your area. Undesignated funds remaining after
the proportional distribution will be distributed by your Local State Employees’ Steering Committee.
There is no single answer to how much of your earnings you may wish to contribute to human needs. Giving
is a personal matter and a personal decision. One suggested guide is one hour’s pay each month for 12
months. This is not a quota or an assessment. Be as generous as you can.
Payroll deductions will begin with the first regular paycheck in January 2011 and will be discontinued
automatically after the last regular paycheck in December 2011. The minimum allotment is $2.00 per deduction
if paid monthly, or $1.00 per deduction if paid every two weeks. For contributions by check, please make
checks payable to the Florida State Employees’ Charitable Campaign. Contributions will be accepted for
authorized charities only.
