    Dear Truliant Member-Owner:

    Not-for-profit credit unions exist to serve and provide their members with low-cost and high-value financial services. Truliant is committed now more than ever to supporting our members by offering affordable products and services to help you achieve your financial goals, along with guidance to help you build a strong financial future.

    Throughout history, credit unions have been providing millions of Americans a place to save, low-interest loans and a plan for the future. Credit unions are different because as a member you are also an owner - it’s your credit union.

    Banks have been fighting to weaken credit unions by trying to enforce corporate income taxes on us to limit our ability to provide low-cost services. Bankers and their trade associations contribute much more money to congressional candidates than credit unions. The Deduct-A-Buck program gives millions of credit union members a voice in the political process. Based on the simple premise that if we all give a little, it will add up to a lot; Deduct-A-Buck is a grassroots movement.

    Please take the time to fill out the Deduct-A-Buck authorization form. Together, we will continue to fight to preserve your right to belong to a credit union and enjoy benefits you have as a result of membership.

    Sincerely,

    Marcus Schaefer
    CEO

  • Q: What is Deduct-A-Buck? 

    A: Deduct-A-Buck is a program used by credit unions to raise money for political action committees that make wise investments (political contributions) with their credit union members’ donations. These donations help elect and re-elect pro-credit union candidates to Congress. Truliant member-owners are asked to consider a voluntary contribution of $1 or more per quarter from your savings or checking account for the Truliant Federal Credit Union Political Action Committee.

    Q: Why is it important to participate in Deduct-A-Buck?

    A: We are at a critical juncture in the financial services industry. Credit unions are a viable and important option for consumers that we want to preserve and grow. As the current economic and legislative environment unfolds, it is vital to have Congressional representatives who understand the value that credit unions present to working families. Deduct-A-Buck, like credit unions, is based on the grassroots concept of people working together at the local level.
