SEFA (State Employees Federated Appeal)


SEFA is a charitable solicitation of New York state employees conducted under the authority of State Finance Law § 201-1.  State employees may give to any of the charitable organizations that have been approved for participation in SEFA and may at any time revoke or modify a contribution made through payroll deduction by providing a written request to the employee’s payroll office.

Be aware that the transition of the SEFA Statewide management began January 1 and is still a work in progress.  One of the many goals is to make this website more user friendly.  We are currently working with a web design company to accomplish that.  Please be patient during this transition time.  

If you are an unaffiliated agency looking to recertify, or an agency looking to participate in this campaign, please click the “Federations & Charities” link above.  That will give you further information. 

In the meantime, if you have any questions that aren’t answered on this website, or can’t be answered by your campaign area’s local SEFA Coordinator, do not hesitate to contact us at the Statewide SEFA Council’s office.  Please refer to the “Contact Us” link above.
