SECU Foundation commits $4 million for Raleigh nature center

The State Employees’ Credit Union announced today that its charitable foundation will give $4 million towards the construction of a new environmental science center in downtown Raleigh.

The grant, the largest ever given by the SECU Foundation, will be used to construct the SECU Daily Planet, a state-of-the-art multimedia presentation area that will be the centerpiece of the planned Nature Research Center.

The research center is part of the Green Square Project, a complex of eco-friendly buildings now under construction in downtown Raleigh.

The Green Square Project, estimated at more than $100 million, is scheduled to be completed in 2011. In addition to the environmental science center, it includes a building for the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
