Why Should I Give to SECC?

There are lots of reasons to give to the SECC! Lots of these charities help our students, so you'd be supporting the A&M-San Antonio community. It helps you support your favorite cause or charity on a regular basis. It strengthens A&M-San Antonio as a strong community partner. Additionally, it makes you feel great, and it's tax deductible.

You may already be involved with one of these charities or may be in the future, so SECC is a great option!

How Can I Give to SECC?

To make a gift, visit https://sso.tamus.edu from September 1 - October 31, 2022 and select SECC Enrollment, then find the recipient(s) and select the amount of your contribution(s) per each recipient.

What Organizations Can I Give To?

Through the SECC, there are thousands of charities and non-profit organizations available. You can also give to student scholarships through the Texas A&M-San Antonio Foundation. The SECC campaign includes several different categories or “federations,” including: United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, Local Unaffiliated Charities, Local Independent Charities of Texas, Creating Healthier Communities, Earth Share and more! A complete list of charities will be available on SSO. You can also check out the mini-directory for San Antonio here.
