Midtown Harrisburg credit union taps crowdfunding to help with startup costs

The Tenants and Landlords Community Federal Credit Union, a new credit union that will cater to Harrisburg’s low-income population, uses the tagline “financing your future.”

But first, the budding Midtown Harrisburg credit union is asking the community to help finance its summer launch.

TLC Federal Credit Union has created a GoFundMe crowdfunding page ahead of its next fundraising event on April 9.

Robert Pauletta Jr., who will serve as the credit union’s senior loan officer and manager, said the GoFundMe page is a backup for the event, which expects to attract at least 200 people.

“We hope to have it up and running before our next event, if (supporters) can’t make the event,” he said.

The new credit union will be based on the first floor of the COBA Apartments building at 1224 N. Third St., a property owned by developer Dan Deitchman of Brickbox Enterprises Ltd. 

Deitchman is chairman of the credit union’s board.

TLC Federal Credit Union is currently in the process of getting its charter approval from the National Credit Union Administration. The credit union’s board will likely vote this week on a contractor to undertake renovations for the Midtown space.
