SEFA/United Way Campaign 2022

From the Chair and the Coordinator of the SEFA/United Way Campaign
Wendy Paterson, chair of the 2022 SEFA/United Way Campaign, and the SEFA Campaign Committee would like to thank everyone who has made a pledge thus far to the Buffalo State SEFA/United Way Campaign. We would also like to take this opportunity to personally ask those of you who have not yet donated to please make a pledge. United Way has a long history of supporting organizations that support communities in need. United Way partners with SEFA to provide funds year-round to numerous health and human service agencies. 

You can donate in five easy steps:

  1. First time through, in your browser's navigation bar, type
  2. Click “Forgot User ID or Password” at the bottom of the page.
  3. Type in your Buffalo State email address. Then check “I’m not a robot” and click on “Email my information.”
  4. Look for an email in your Buffalo State inbox from and click PasswordResetLink to create your United Way password. Create the new password (minimum four characters) and click Save.
  5. Click Continue to make your pledge

Additionally, the SEFA Campaign Committee will hold a raffle for a gift basket containing D’Avolio’s gourmet olive oils, balsamic vinegar, healthful flavored risotto, and a $25 gift card to Wegmans to use for yourself or as a Thanksgiving gift. This gift basket has a retail value of more than $125. You will be automatically entered into the drawing if you increase your pledge amount from last year. The names of those who already submitted an increased pledge will be entered into this drawing as well.

Please consider giving to any of the several charitable agencies in the 2022 SEFA booklet (PDF, 5 MB). Hurry and get your pledge in; the next basket drawing will be held Thursday, November 17.

Please take notice of the extraordinary internal prizes to be generously awarded at the end of the campaign:
