It’s Better to Give than to Receive…

As we head into the final days of December, lighting candles, last minute shopping and looking forward to gathering with family and friends it is worth taking a moment to reflect on those most in need!  Amidst the all the gift giving, please remember a small donation to CULAC will be appreciated, acknowledged and remembered by the recipients throughout the year.  CULAC donations that flow in turn to members of Congress representing, MD, DC and system -wide are vital for keeping the home-fires burning. 

The recent mid-term elections were a great example of our collective funds playing a part in the outcome.  With a few notable exceptions, the vast majority of CU-friendly candidates and incumbents which we supported as an industry won their respective races.  It is so important that we maintain and continue to expand upon our relationships throughout the year.  A small donation…literally just a few dollars is a gift that keeps on giving!  Don’t wait, give today!
