CULAC: Investing in Your Credit Union’s Future
The Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) is the federal PAC for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). CULAC’s purpose, as defined in its Articles of Association, is to “provide the opportunity for individuals interested in the future of the credit union movement to contribute to the support of worthy candidates for federal office who believe, and have demonstrated their belief, in the principles to which the industry is dedicated.”
As many credit unions that already participate in the Deduct a Buck program can attest, Deduct a Buck offers a number of attractions as a fundraising tool.
Deduct-A-Buck has the potential to be an enormous tool for the credit union movement. By asking credit union members to contribute a dollar, or more, each month, quarter or year, for political activity we can build an unparalleled base of support that will allow credit unions’ political power to increase exponentially.

Project Zip Code
Project Zip Code (PZC) is a secure program that counts your credit union members and matches them by congressional district, state legislative district, and county. These numbers are uploaded to CUNA’s Project Zip Code national database and combined with numbers nationwide. The member totals are then transmitted for use of the PZC national website, www.pzconline.com. This data aids in federal and state advocacy efforts, and is useful to credit unions interested in ATM expansion or shared branching.
