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.
