It’s now easier than ever to support the New York credit union movement! Just text FOCUSNY to 53555 to support the New York Credit Union Association’s political action committee, FOCUS New York!
Or, with just one click, you can lend your support via the new FOCUS New York donation page.
Individual contributions to FOCUS New York are directed in a bipartisan manner to help elect candidates for state office who support a pro-credit union agenda and reflect the ideals and values of the credit union movement. Contributions to FOCUS New York help protect the interests of credit unions in New York and ensure that credit unions have a voice in state government.
FOCUS New York’s recently rebranded name, look, and feel provide new energy, new synergy, more support, and ultimately more influence, for New York credit unions. It also gives credit unions an avenue to build new relationships with lawmakers and educate them on the importance of credit unions and the impact they have in the lives of New Yorkers.
Contributions to the FOCUS NY PAC are for political purposes and are not tax deductible for federal income tax purposes. All contributions to the FOCUS NY PAC are voluntary. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. Rules for state political fundraising require us to record the name and address of anyone who donates, and if the donor contributes more than $99 per year, we are also required to disclose the donor’s name and address to the New York State Board of Elections.
Corporate contributions from federal credit unions are prohibited. State chartered credit unions may make a corporate contribution up to $5,000 per calendar year.
