The Stony Brook Cares SEFA/United Way campaign provides a unique opportunity for faculty and staff to help affiliated charities and human services agencies in our community. Many local services rely on these funds to sustain their operations. These agencies help the elderly, provide childcare, assist the disabled and provide critical support for families.
Contributions to Stony Brook Cares may be directed to specific agencies including several on campus, such as: Stony Brook Child Care Services, The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, University Hospital Auxiliary, The Charles Thide Foundation and Literacy Suffolk (Literacy Volunteers of America, Inc.). Alternatively, you may allow your undesignated gifts to be distributed through local SEFA and United Way committees.
Barbara Chernow, Stony Brook’s Senior Vice President for Administration and chair of this year’s SEFA/United Way campaign, describes how your charitable donation through this initiative will help needy families in our community.
