THE SECC LEADERSHIP AND SUPER GIVER
SECC Leadership Givers are among the most dedicated individuals who invest graciously to help others. Leadership Givers are recognized as community leaders who set the example for friends, peers and other associates to follow. SECC Leadership Givers donate at least $1,000 per campaign year. They are given four entries into our prize squad give away. Ten (10) state employee winners will win $500 ($250 to donate to an SECC charity of their choice and $250 for prize winning). The winner must be a State of Arizona employee or retiree at the time of the drawing.
For various reasons, not all State employees can give at the Leadership Giver level. Alternatively, state employees can become an SECC Super Giver. Super givers donate one hour of pay or more per pay period. The level of giving commitment and generosity is the same whether an employee makes $12 an hour or $22 dollars per hour. SECC super givers will also receive four entries into our prize squad give away. We encourage as many as possible to consider making an investment as a Super Giver.
