A Letter from This Year’s Campaign Chair
Provost Eric W. Kaler
In next week’s campus mail, you should receive materials about our annual Stony Brook Cares/SEFA Campaign. Charitable giving is a personal decision. This is why the SB Cares/SEFA campaign is
an excellent opportunity for you to exercise your choice.
SEFA was established so that you have the potential to choose the recipient of your donation and the process is easy and effective. This annual fundraising effort supports a network of local, national, and international community services all year long. With your support, the SEFA-affiliated agencies feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, nurture the sick, care for the elderly, counsel troubled youth, protect the environment, and make an overall difference in so many lives.
With more than 500 charitable organizations to choose from, there’s sure to be a good fit for your contribution. Additionally, by making your contribution through SEFA, managed locally by the United Way of Long Island, you can be assured that your donation is put to work to address the needs you choose. Annually, 90 percent of contributions go directly to the agency/agencies of the donor’s choice.
All pledge forms should be returned to Darschay Harris, Staff Assistant to the Provost, 407 Administration, Stony Brook, NY 11794-1401. Please do not hesitate to contact Darschay Harris at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 632-4360 if you should have any questions regarding this year’s campaign or for assistance in completing the pledge form. Please note that the priority deadline for the receipt of pledge forms is Friday, December 18, 2009.
Thank you for your support in helping our Long Island neighbors and people in need around the world through your contributions to the Stony Brook Cares campaign.
It is up to you. You can make the difference! Give because you care.
With Sincere Thanks,
Eric W. Kaler, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
