Griffith Institute Employees Federal Credit Union


The Griffith Institute Employees Federal Credit Union (GIEFCU) was established in 1961 by a group of teachers employed by the Griffith Institute Central School District. The  Credit Union was created to allow the employees of the school district access to savings and loan accounts. In 2002, GIEFCU’s field of membership was expanded to include employees of the The Children’s League (previously named Springville League for the Handicapped).

The GIEFCU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative that is owned and directed by its  members. Because of this, members of the Credit Union have lower loan rates, higher yields on savings, and lower or no fees for our services.

News & Announcements

  International Credit Union Day



On Thursday, October 15, credit union members worldwide will celebrate International Credit Union Day.


The Griffith Institute Employees’ Federal Credit Union Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to thank its members for being part of the Credit Union.   In celebration of International Credit Union Day, the CU will have mints in the Main Office of each building in the District or in your mailboxes.


Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives, so our focus has always been on service to our members.  This service is provided in many ways – from financing for a new car to providing a small loan to get through tough times. Each member has an equal vote in electing a volunteer board of directors.  Since there are no stockholders, you receive higher rates on savings accounts, lower rates on loans, and lower service fees. You’ll find the best deals and the best service, year ‘round.


The Board extends an invitation to all non-members to join the Griffith Institute Employees’ Federal Credit Union. 


With your support, the Credit Union can expand and continue to be part of the community.  If interested call 592-9887 or email us at    Visit our website where there is  information about the Credit Union
