Candy Bars

Chapter and individual credit unions have been very successful at meeting their MCULLAF (Federal PAC) fundraising goals by selling candy bars in their lobbies. Because of restrictive state law requirements, the candy bar program should be conducted for federal fundraising.  The program can be used for sales to members, staff, and officials of the credit union (anyone within the “solicitable class” of MCULLAF or the credit union). When submitting proceeds from this fundraising activity to MCULLAF, please remember that a money order or cashier’s check along with a Fundraising Remittance Form needs to be filled out. Please note a corporate check from a credit union is prohibited.

Credit unions can choose what amount to sell their candy bars for. However, please contact MCUL Government Affairs staff for information and guidelines on reimbursement to the credit union on all or part of the purchase price of any candy, to ensure full compliance. And, remember to remit all funds to MCULLAF within 30 days of receipt, and to remit all funds received this year by December 31.

When selling candy (or other items) credit unions must post a sign indicating that part of the money goes to a PAC and must also include all other legal disclaimers. Please see below for a sample sign for MCULLAF (federal PAC) that you can use.
