Participation in SECA
Charities wishing to participate in the commonwealth's State Employee Combined Appeal (SECA) campaign for the coming year should complete the SECA application (PDF) and submit it, along with all required attachments, to their umbrella organization, unless they are submitting a master application.
All charities must apply each year by January 31 to participate in SECA, including those that have participated in the previous year’s campaign. This application demonstrates that all organizations participating in SECA have met the requirements listed in appendices 2 and 3 of the SECA application (PDF). Please review Management Directive 530.23 and the corresponding Manual 530.21 for more detailed program definitions and process descriptions.
SECA policy sets objective criteria to ensure that every charity in the campaign has met a threshold of financial and administrative integrity.
509(a) 3 eligible charities are also eligible to participate in SECA, provided that all the other criteria for participation are met.
Further questions concerning the application process can be submitted to the Bureau of Employee Benefits at RA-SECA@pa.gov.
