SECU donated 270000 to 900 charities in 09
RALEIGH, N.C. (12/23/09)--State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) of North Carolina employees and members made contributions benefiting more than 900 nonprofits in the 2009 State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC). SECU employees donated more than $66,000 to this year’s campaign, and SECU members, via their foundation, provided $200,000 in funding for the SECC Resource Guide Listing, helping to offset administrative costs of the campaign to assure more funds reach the North Carolinians who need them most. In a year when overall giving to the campaign was down by 20%, SECU employees increased their giving by 15%, surpassing their 2008 figure by nearly $9,000. This outreach complements the credit union’s ongoing charitable efforts at its 226 branches and multiple operations centers, SECU said. “In this time of great need in North Carolina, SECU’s employees are demonstrating their commitment to helping others through efforts such as the SECC,” said Leigh Brady, senior vice president of SECU’s Education Services department. She noted the efforts exceeded expectations for the campaign. “Equally impressive is the commitment of SECU members, providing critical funding for the SECC Campaign in the absence of state resources,” Brady said. SECU, based in Raleigh, N.C., has more than $16.7 billion in assets.
