The State Employees Credit Union was founded as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing state employees with an accessible means for borrowing monies at fair and reasonable rates of interest. Since its inception, the success of the cooperative union has led to its growth, and today the SECU offers members a full range of financial services. The SECU funds two $5,000 scholarships at all fifty-eight NC Community Colleges, as well as providing charitable support for the March of Dimes campaign and the Victory Junction Gang camp.
