For the 14th consecutive year, state employees have donated more than $1 million to the Missouri State Employee Charitable Campaign (MSECC). The MSECC is an annual fundraising effort organized by the Office of Administration that allows state employees to give to their favorite charities through payroll deduction or one-time gifts. Nearly 800 Missouri charitable organizations will benefit from the gifts given by the nation’s lowest paid state workers.
“There is no greater mark of human compassion than the willingness of a person to reach out their hand and extend it another in need,” says Office of Administration Commissioner Sarah Steelman. “The State of Missouri is fortunate to have a workforce that consistently and generously puts the needs of our citizens first by supporting our annual charitable campaign.”
Other notable highlights from this year’s campaign:
*The Governor’s Office employees had a 100% participation rate.
*The Department of Corrections ranked 1st in pledges among state departments.
*The Office of Administration employees had their highest pledges in the history of the campaign.
*The Auditor’s Office employees also had their highest pledges in the history of the campaign.
The Missouri Office of Administration says during the past 33 years, state employees have donated more than $30 million to the Missouri State Employee Charitable Campaign (MSECC).
