The SECU Foundation promotes local and community development by primarily funding
high impact projects in the areas of housing, education, healthcare and human
services. The State Employees' Credit Union Board of Directors has chartered
the SECU Foundation to help identify and address community issues that are
beyond the normal scope of State Employees' Credit Union. While individual
members may not have a large impact; collectively and cooperatively the
Foundation can go a long way toward helping solve problems in our
neighborhoods, schools and our community at large.
SECU Foundation was established as a vehicle to "drive" the Credit Union
philosophy of "People Helping People". The Foundation was recently recognized
nationally by receiving the Herb Wegner Award in 2008 for Outstanding Program.
SECU Foundation has also received local recognition by receiving the Dora
Maxwell Social Responsibility Award.
