About SECA

State and University Employees Combined Appeal (SECA) is the once-a-year (September 22 - November 17, 2021) program that provides all employees the opportunity to donate to, the charitable causes of their choice.

As of August 2021, pursuant to P.A. 102-0291, the Illinois Office Comptroller has become the administrating agency of the SECA program. Originally established in 1983, SECA is a workplace-giving campaign that allows State Employees to donate to nearly 1,500 charities at local, state, national, and international levels. State employees have contributed over $83 million to help improve our environment.
