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 support an assembly program on going green at 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.

Give whatever you can, and together we can make a difference!
