Contributing to the ARCUPAC by payroll deduction is the easiest and most meaningful way your employees can support the future of your credit union and the credit union movement as a whole.
Think of the enormous impact we could make if every credit union employee contributed just $1 per week through payroll deduction. One dollar! That’s less than the cost of a candy bar or a cup of coffee!
Why Payroll Deduction?
- It is self-sustaining and the most cost efficient fundraising program you can implement.
- It provides a steady stream of income to support state and federal lawmakers when requested.
- It is simple and painless...having a small amount automatically withheld from each paycheck is barely noticeable and yet it adds up over time. A $5 contribution per pay period is $130 a year.
- It will raise more money and allow more people to contribute their fair share.
Reminder: Employees MUST be a member of the credit union to participate in this program.

Candy Sale Resources
Simply fax your order to 469-385-6487 or e-mail to April Krause at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get it sent to World’s Finest Chocolate. The candy is shipped directly to your credit union, or to a central location if multiple credit unions are participating. (Minimum orders are required.)
Reminder: State law requires PACs to itemize individual contributions greater than $50.
Consequently, credit unions should be able to track and retain records for candy sales in the event a member purchases over $50 worth of candy. You may send a credit union check for the amount collected after the candy is sold.
