As many of you know, the New York State SEFA Council’s current Memorandum of Understanding with our Fiscal Manager, EarthShare expires at the end of December, 2015.  The State SEFA Council wants you to know that within the next couple of weeks a Request for Application (RFA), will be published, which seeks a statewide Federated Community Campaign Manager for 2016-2018.  It is our sincere desire that your organization consider becoming our next FCCM. This pre-announcement is being shared with our partners to provide ample “food for thought” should your organization have the initiative and desire to substantively impact the State SEFA Campaign in the immediate future. 


Please watch for the RFA, which will be released in early September 2015.
