SECU gives 250000 challenge grant to library
RALEIGH, N.C. (9/11/09)--State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) members via the SECU Foundation have given a $250,000 challenge grant to a library in Jackson County, N.C. The grant will allow the Friends of the Library to complete the fundraising goal needed for the construction of the 20,000-square-foot library, which will be located next to the recently restored, historical Jackson County Courthouse. The SECU Foundation partnered with the non-profit Friends of the Jackson County Main Library to provide services to citizens in Macon, Swain and Haywood counties. The complex also will benefit the local university and community college and other regional libraries. “The $250,000 challenge grant is a strong incentive for our community to reach the $1.6 million we need to complete the new library complex,” said June Smith, Friends president. “For every dollar given to the New Library Fund, the SECU Foundation will match it up to $250,000.” SECU, located in Raleigh, N.C., has $18 billion in assets.
