SECU Foundation 5M gift largest by CU
RALEIGH, N.C. (8/24/10)--State Employees’ CU (SECU) says the SECU Foundation, Raleigh, N.C., will contribute $5 million--the largest donation it is has ever made--toward construction of a cancer center at a local hospital. SECU will contribute the money to help build the 120,000-square-foot center--which will feature the credit union’s name--at Mission Hospital (Asheville Citizen-Times Aug. 21). The center will be completed in early 2012, the newspaper said. “We are trying to do projects across the state that can be duplicated in other areas,” Shirley Bell, chairwoman of the SECU Foundation board, told the paper. “We are helping all citizens by this center being here.” The five-level building and a 300-space parking deck will provide one location for all the hospital’s outpatient cancer services. Then, patients won’t need to travel to different locations for chemotherapy treatments, CT scans and office visits, the paper said. About 800,000 SECU members statewide contribute $1 to the foundation each month, the paper said. The foundation gives grants to projects statewide.
