Abstract

Records pertaining to the University at Buffalo's annual State Employees Federated Appeal (SEFA) campaign. Though not comprehensive, records include aggregate fund raising goals and outcomes (by department), as well as training materials for SEFA liaisons.

Historical Note

From 1995 Campaign Liaison Handbook: The State Employees Federated Appeal (SEFA) is the single campaign supported by labor and management in which State employees can contribute to qualified voluntary non-profit charitable organizations rendering services to human health, welfare, and recreational programs.

The appeal was initiated in 1976 to consolidate frequently occurring solicitations of State employees by various charitable organizations. One of the major benefits of the SEFA campaign was the approval of a payroll deduction plan. This plan allows for the safe, convenient, and efficient collection of employee contributions.
