Every year, credit unions of all sizes raise more than $90,000 for MCULAF, our state PAC, by selling lapel pins. Credit union employees wear these pins with pride, knowing they are doing their part to ensure credit unions have a strong voice at our state Capitol in Lansing. The MCUL is looking to make 2013 our strongest year yet, encouraging all credit unions to utilize payroll deduction for next year’s campaign.
MCULAF had a strong fundraising year in 2012. The Lapel Pin Program is the cornerstone of state PAC fundraising, and accounts for 54 percent of all money raised for MCULAF so far in 2012. With six weeks remaining, 109 credit unions have raised nearly $100,000 in 2012, surpassing our previous-year fundraising total.
With the lapel pin program, you’re not only making a contribution, you’re making an investment in the future strength of the credit union industry. The MCULAF lapel pin campaign is easy to administer and with payroll deduction, participants can spread their contributions over 12 months.
