SECC Charities and Causes
One of the great benefits of the SECC is the wide variety of charities and causes represented; there is something for everyone. They range in scope from small, local grassroots organizations, to well-known national and international groups. All charities that wish to participate must meet stringent legal requirements, and then be scrutinized by teams of state employees to ensure:
- They are recognized by the IRS as 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and registered with the Secretary of State.
- They are audited (or reviewed) annually by an accountant in accordance with generally-accepted auditing standards.
- They provide direct or indirect health and human services.
- They spend no more than 25 percent of funds raised on administration.
