Dear Colleagues:

All of us have been affected by this pandemic. These unprecedented times have especially underscored the underinvestment of services within underserved communities.  More than ever, it is important to support charities that rely on us to continue providing critical services to those most in need.

The State Employees Federated Appeal (SEFA) is an amazing opportunity for state workers to make a voluntary financial contribution to a variety of local, national and international nonprofits found in the SEFA charity book.

All of us at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University have an opportunity to help someone in need. Your donation, no matter how small or how large, is essential. SEFA is the perfect way for all of us to give back during these very tough times.

The SEFA Campaign begins NOW and ends on Dec 20, 2020.

Check out this year’s campaign video to see how every donation to SEFA continues to make a difference.
