As an organization rooted in self-governing principles, Dupaco proudly fosters an environment of informed and active citizenship. We advocate for you and will always inform you of legislative action and issues that could potentially impact your member benefits. We do not favor or endorse any particular political party. As an organization, we focus on creating awareness and offering you avenues for having your voice heard.

Credit unions like Dupaco are not-for-profit financial cooperatives created for the purposes of*:

  • Creating a source of credit at a fair and reasonable rate of interest;
  • Encouraging habits of thrift among its members; and
  • Providing an opportunity for its members to use and control their own money on a democratic basis in order to improve their economic and social condition.

* State of Iowa Code. Chapter 533.102: Definition of “Credit Union.”

Raise Your Voice

Iowa bankers are actively lobbying legislators to raise taxes on credit unions and restrict the Iowans they can serve. The changes they seek to implement will negatively impact the benefits you receive as a credit union member—and our ability to offer free services like Bright Track credit monitoring and participation dividends like Thank Use.

Help us oppose these bank efforts so you can continue to enjoy the benefits of partnering with not-for-profit financial cooperatives, like Dupaco. Click below and let your legislators know where you stand on this important issue.
