‘$30 by June 30th’ Fundraising Challenge Kicked Off This Month

The Credit Union Legislative Action Council’s (CULAC) yearly “$30 by June 30th” fundraising challenge started this week — and this year the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues are sweetening the pot by including an additional June 30×30 Sweepstakes!

The Leagues’ 30×30 Sweepstakes means that for every $30 donation, participants will automatically be entered to win a $250 gift card to The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, where the Leagues’ annual convention — REACH 2023 — will be taking place from Oct. 22 – 26! This gift card is good at Sahra Spa, Salon & Hammam, pools, shops, and select restaurants and lounges.

Donate by clicking here anytime between June 1 and June 30th! You can view the official sweepstakes rules here.

Last year (2022), California and Nevada credit union leaders and advocates raised $6,435 toward the Federal PAC (with credit union leaders going above and beyond the fundraising goal of $5,000) — which was an increase over the year before (2021) of $4,145. Ninety-two individual credit union leaders donated last year, with donations ranging from $30 to $1,000. You can read more here.

CULAC is the prime resource to help provide a voice for credit unions on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., all while supporting the ongoing mission to enhance financial wellbeing for all consumers.

“Your contribution to CULAC helps support candidates for Congress who share that critical goal,” said Angelica Pappalardo, political advocacy manager for the Leagues. “As the Leagues gear up for future elections, these donations will help weigh-in on critical congressional races to ensure the credit union movement elects credit union-friendly candidates into Congress. Each donor’s support goes a long way.”

The donor list will be on full display at the Leagues’ annual REACH Conference in October during the PAC Contributors Reception.

“Thank you in advance for your support,” Pappalardo added. “Your contributions help form impactful relationships with lawmakers and candidates, educate them on the credit union difference, and elect those who put credit unions and our members first.”

If you have any questions/issues donating, email Angelica Pappalardo.
