President’s message

Congratulations to Robert Hojnacki, Samuel Belzer and Kimberly Regener on their re-election to our Board of Directors.

Congratulations also to Amy Piconke and Kenneth Zukowski who continue to serve on the Credit Committee.

Each of our volunteer officials brings valuable experience to the position. Some have technical expertise to guide development, while others are well-schooled in finance and help steer our investment policies. All are long-time members committed to keeping MCCCU safe, strong and providing financial value to members.

Thank you to all our outstanding volunteer officials for their service and for exemplifying the “people helping people” motto of credit unions. I’m inspired by their commitment to you, our member-owners.

Don’t get caught in a crowdfunding scam

Crowdfunding platforms like GoFundMe, Kickstarter and IndieGoGo are packed with eager entrepreneurs, people in need of help and unfortunately, scammers too.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated for fraudulent causes. Some scammers concoct heartbreaking stories about “sick” relatives who are in reality perfectly healthy. Others seek investors for inventions that are totally implausible and will never reach market.

Some crowdfunding platforms may refund your money in case of a scam, but most will keep a portion for themselves.
Before donating to any cause, do basic research to verify its legitimacy.

  • Google names to see what is on the internet about the organizers.
  • Look up related street addresses to confirm they’re real.
  • Check for the organizer’s previous crowdfunding campaigns.
  • If you’re hoping for a tax deduction, confirm the group’s tax status.
  • Ask yourself if the story is plausible when you look at it logically instead of emotionally.
  • Contact the campaign’s creator and ask for verification or details.

Everyone wants to support good causes, but no one wants scammers to divert funds from legitimate needs. So do your homework before joining a crowdfunding effort.
