The San Diego County Employees Charitable Organization (CECO) has been the charitable arm of the County of San Diego since 1956. CECO has distributed over $6.9M to the local community by way of grants to local non-profit organizations, and assistance to eligible employees and retirees facing a crisis. CECO is funded by the generosity of County of San Diego employees and retirees who lend a hand via biweekly payroll contributions, monthly or one-time donations, and/or volunteering in CECO events. For more information about lending a hand, see Ways to Give.
In 2016, CECO was formally recognized as a Live Well San Diego Partner, joining many other organizations in our region in helping bring the Live Well San Diego vision of a region that is Building Better Health, Living Safely and Thriving to life. For more information, see www.livewellsd.org.
