“Blazing a New Trail”

Often, even a small group of people committed to a common cause can accomplish great things. Just imagine what thousands of commonwealth employees can accomplish by committing to this year’s State Employee Combined Appeal theme of “Blazing a New Trail.”

Since SECA began in the 1970’s, employees have raised more than $100 million. Many of your colleagues give each year because SECA allows them to easily donate to the causes most important to them.

This year, our agency is striving to meet our goals of $111,053. Employees can elect a recurring or one-time deduction from your pay, or you can donate using a check or money order.

To contribute, just visit the Employee Self Service Portal (preferred method) or use a paper pledge form to designate your amount. Take your donation a step further by dedicating it to someone special.

Employees who give just an hour or half-hour of pay per month are recognized as Governor’s Circle and Gold Givers. ESS will calculate your minimum leadership giving amount, and you can also read more about leadership giving here.

The 2023 SECA campaign ends October 27. Online pledging via Employee Self Service will remain open for an additional week until November 3.

General information about SECA and information on participating agencies and methods to pledge can be found at the SECA website and through the following links:

Why Give through SECA?

Supporting charities through payroll deduction makes giving easier and less painful.
