SEFA/United Way 2014 Campaign

The United Way is the most comprehensive human service network in our community, funding a variety of programs that help thousands daily. The mission of the United Way is to work in partnership with others to build a stronger community by developing resources that effectively meet human service needs through prevention and intervention programs.

SEFA is the single combined campaign for employees of New York State, providing funds year-round to many health and human service agencies. The SEFA Directory of Participating Charities lists the agencies supported through SEFA. A link to the online Directory of Participating Charities for 2014 is below.  Employees may designate all or part of their gifts to one or more of these agencies.
