For Employees 


The State Employee Combined Appeal (SECA) is the commonwealth's annual combined charitable giving campaign for employees. Employees have the opportunity to donate to any of hundreds of participating non-profit charities. 

The valuable services these charities provide range from conserving our natural resources to providing assistance to the elderly, finding a cure for cancer, or providing shelter for a needy family — in Pennsylvania, across the nation or around the world. 

How to Give

Most employees can make their contributions using employee self service rather than the paper pledge form. These instructions (PDF) will show you how to complete your pledge. All employees are encouraged to consider being Leadership Givers. Governor's Circle and Gold Leadership Giving Levels recognize those employees who commit to donate at least an hour or half-hour of pay each month.

The SECA Resource Guide (PDF) lists all the participating charities and their codes. If you do not use employee self service, or if you would like to make a one-time donation by check or money order, a printable pledge form (PDF) is available.

Many agencies host events to kick off the campaign. Also, be sure to check out the SECA video to learn more about campaign and why employees give.
