SECC 2014

  • THANK YOU UTMB—Campaign pushes past goal, final amount being calculated

    The 2014 State Employee Charitable Campaign broke the half-million-dollar mark early Friday morning and kept climbing. After pledges made on paper and mailed in are tallied, we expect to be over $519,000 with support from more than 2,761 employees. Great job UTMB.

    We send out a sincere “thank you” to the thousands who have supported this year’s effort. Your generosity this season has been outstanding and heartwarming; your gifts will make wishes and dreams come true this season and throughout the coming year.

  • 100 MBs for 100 Percent

    We always highlight and celebrate the areas that reach 100 percent participation in the campaign. This year, we’re announced we would reward those groups with a special digital “thank you”: each person in every area that reaches 100 percent in the SECC is having the size of their email storage allotment increased by 100 megabytes.

    The list is being finalized now and details on implementation will be ready soon. Many areas hit the mark, nearly 100 groups (which would make this 100 for 100 for 100!). Help us celebrate with these great teams: http://www.utmb.edu/secc/pledge/ParticipationByDept.asp

  • THANK YOU UTMB—Campaign pushes past goal, support still welcome

    The 2014 State Employee Charitable Campaign broke the half-million-dollar mark early Friday morning. By midday, it was near $515,000 with support from more than 2,640 employees. The campaign ends at midnight on Friday, Dec. 5. If you have not made a pledge and would like to, there is still time. [Pledge now].

    We send out a sincere “thank you” to the thousands who have supported this year’s effort. Your generosity this season has been outstanding and heartwarming; your gifts will make wishes and dreams come true this season and throughout the coming year.

    You have proven it again: when it comes to having a HEART, there’s no place like UTMB.

  • Be part of a “secret” SECC experiment

    We’re always looking for ways to recognize people and celebrate the support we get from the UTMB community for the State Employee Charitable Campaign.  This year we are testing an idea we’re calling the “Selflessie,” a play on the “Selfies” that have become part of popular culture, especially on social media.

    We’d love to have your photo in our gallery, which you can preview only through this link.    

    Here’s how: If you are an Instagram user, take a photo—of yourself, your team, your thank you card, you and your SECC lapel pin—and post it to your Instagram account using the hashtag #UTMBSECC. (Your profile has to be set to share images/be public).

    Or, take an SECC selfie and email it to public.affairs@utmb.edu and we’ll post it for you.

    If this pilot catches on, we’ll share the page far and wide!
