Public Employee Charitable Campaign (PECC) Information
In accordance with the Department of Treasury Regulation 17:29, each county in New Jersey is able to offer their employees the opportunity to support charities through payroll contributions.
Public Employee Charitable Campaigns are the only way in which public employees can support charities from their workplace. The legislation was enacted to “provide a convenient channel through which employees of local units of government may support the efforts of charitable fund-raising organizations and charitable agencies while minimizing disruption to the workplace and cost to the taxpayers that fund-raising may entail.”17:29 1.1(a)1. The time period for each campaign is established by the Steering Committee which consists of the member agencies and representatives from each local unit of government and Board of Education participating in the campaign.
If a charity has been accepted into the New Jersey State Employees Charitable Campaign, they are eligible to apply for participation in each of the county campaigns. While not every county is currently running a Public Employees Charitable Campaign (PECC), many are.
