SECU Habitat Challenge
The SECU Foundation and Habitat for Humanity® of North Carolina (HHNC) have signed a formal Memorandum of Agreement for a joint initiative to expand affordable housing across North Carolina–the SECU Habitat Mountains to the Sea Challenge. SECU Foundation’s Challenge will provide an investment of up to $10 million over a three-year period for HHNC to build one new (or thoroughly renovated) home in each of NC’s 100 counties.

SECU Challenge Affiliate Update as of 7.14.2020
Our final home project closed in Lee County on May 31st —taking us to our goal of 102 homes! We are full of gratitude for reaching this historic point. With the Challenge completed, the SECU Foundation has contributed $10,551,159 to Habitat affiliates across the state.
The Challenge represents the largest project in NC’s 42-year history with Habitat. We are aware of no project in any other state that constitutes this level of engagement between so many entities—a foundation, 66 Habitat affiliates, Habitat for Humanity of NC, hundreds of volunteers, corporate partners and private foundations.
