State Employees Federated Appeal 2018


  • November is SEFA Participation Month!
  • No gift is too small to make an impact!
  • You pick the charities you are passionate about!

State Employees Federated Appeal - What is it and how can I help?

SEFA provides ALL New York State employees (CSEA, UUP, PEF, COUNCIL 82 etc.) the opportunity to support a network of local, national and international community services all year long through payroll deduction. Your gift to SEFA helps people cope with the kinds of problems many of us hope we will never have to face such as natural disasters, crisis services, or lack of adequate food and shelter. SEFA serves State employees and thousands of others who are in need of assistance. Your generosity is the most effective way to improve their quality of life.

Your contribution goes directly to the charity of your choosing.

How Your Contributions Work

Even small monetary donations can have a big impact in our communities!

For just $2 per paycheck, your donation can help stop the spread of HIV by providing a community member with a HIV blood test, results & counseling!

For just $5 per paycheck, your donation can provide a spay/neuter surgery for a shelter pet!

For just $10 per paycheck, your donation can enable an assembly program on going green to a local elementary school!

For just $15 per paycheck, your donation can provide supplies to build emergency shelters for twenty families uprooted during a crisis!

BONUS: By participating, you will be entered to win one of 26 Payday Raffle Prizes!

For our 2019 campaign year, what is most important is to participate. Give whatever you can, and together we can make a difference!

This year pledge cards will be distributed to your department mail stops the week of November 2, 2018.  Please sign up online or return your signed pledge form by December 1, 2018.
