Raleigh, N.C. – SECU Foundation is pleased to announce the third phase of its COVID-19 pandemic relief efforts, in which over $3 million in grants were awarded to thirty-four North Carolina non-profits to support their operational needs. Organizations across the state adversely affected by the crisis are in dire need of financial assistance to offset mounting expenses and to continue their mission of providing valuable services in communities of North Carolina. The grants, distributed over the past several weeks, provide much needed support to a diverse group of non-profits that SECU Foundation has assisted over the last 15 years. These organizations span all regions of our State and help meet essential needs in the areas of healthcare and human services. Examples include hospice care, healthcare centers, domestic violence and homeless shelters, and addiction recovery centers.
