About Stony Brook Cares

Dear Colleague,

The Stony Brook Cares/SEFA United Way Campaign helps local, national, and international organizations in their mission to deliver vital services in our communities. SEFA-affiliated agencies provide critical aid for the hungry, the homeless, the sick, and the elderly, programs for youth and protection for our environment. With your support, these activities and programs make a great difference in many lives.

Charitable giving is a very personal decision. SEFA gives you a simple and effective way to choose an amount for your tax-deductible contribution and to specify which organizations will receive your support. There are more than 500 SEFA-affiliated charities to choose from, so there may be several you would like to help. By supporting them through SEFA, managed locally by the United Way of Long Island, you can be sure that your giving will target the needs you feel are most important. Annually, ​85% of SEFA funds contributed go directly to the agencies chosen, so the SB Cares/SEFA United Way campaign means that your participation will have the greatest possible impact.
