State Employee Combined Appeal

    Forty years ago, the seeds of the State Employee Combined Appeal were planted with a vision of helping others through workplace giving. SECA continues to endure because of caring Commonwealth of Pennsylvania employees like you.

    The 2017 SECA campaign kicked off September 5 and runs through October 27, 2017. Again this year, IUP employees can make a pledge via the ESS employee portal.

    The theme of this year’s campaign is “Sow Compassion, Grow Hope.” We all have different reasons for giving and causes we care deeply about. With approximately 1,000 charities from which to choose, you can easily find organizations whose missions align with your personal values serving local, regional, national, and global needs and causes. There are also flexible giving options to make donating affordable and convenient.

    Tammy Manko, director of IUP’s Career and Professional Development Center, is the chair of this year’s SECA campaign at IUP.

    General information about SECA and information on participating agencies and methods to pledge can be found at the “SECA “Sow Compassion, Grow Hope” website” and the following links:
