There are some costs associated with running the charitable campaign, such as printing costs and SECA manager expenses. To cover these costs, there is an administrative fee that is deducted from each pledge made.
Currently, the administrative fee is 8% of each individual pledge. For example, if you pledged $1.00, $0.92 will go to the designated charity and $0.08 goes into the administrative fee account.
At the end of each calendar year, any remaining funds will be distributed to the umbrella organizations to be divided amongst the charities.
Please contact the Bureau of Employee Benefits and Services at RA-BENHELP@pa.gov if you have any questions.
Management Directive 530.23 established SECA as the only charitable campaign allowed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in its statewide offices.
