    CUPAC Contributions - You Make a Difference!

    More than a dozen credit unions have made giving to the Credit Union Political Action Committee (CUPAC) a priority in the first few months of 2019. We have a CUPAC in Kansas and Missouri that credit union-friendly lawmakers who support credit unions and our issues of concern with campaign funds. All contributions to CUPAC - both individual and corporate - support credit union political action.
